Starting April 1st we are Fine Free!
Which materials are fine free?
As of April 1st, any item checked out at the Worth Public Library District will not accumulate fines if it is overdue, regardless of where the item is returned. The only item to continue accruing fines will be our Hot Spots.
How does it work?
If materials are not returned or renewed by their due date, at 14 days overdue a patron’s account will be placed on hold and they will be unable to check out materials, place holds, or utilize online resources. Once overdue materials are returned, the hold on the card is automatically removed and good standing status is restored. Lost or damaged materials will still need to be paid for. Materials that are 42 days overdue are assumed lost and the Library will bill for the replacement cost.
What if I currently have overdue fines on my account?
We welcome back all patrons who stayed away due to fines. Additionally, existing overdue fines will be removed from all patron accounts, as long as the materials have been returned. Lost or damaged items still require payment.
