Beginning May 1, Newfield Public Library will no longer charge overdue fines for items returned later than their due dates.
Patrons will no longer receive daily late fines on overdue items.
Existing fines from past overdue items issued by NPL will be waived. It will take some time to remove all past overdue fines in the system.
Patrons are still responsible for returning all library items by the date due.
If you have overdue fines from other libraries in the Finger Lakes Library System, you are still responsible for paying these at the library where these fines accrued; some libraries have fines and some do not, as this is a policy established by each individual library.
All items are assumed lost when they reach the 30 day overdue point after the final due date, and the patron will be billed for the replacement costs.
Past replacement fees for lost or damaged items still apply and will remain on account balances.
The $1 a day out-of-system interlibrary loan fee set by the Finger Lakes Library System still applies.
Fees for library services and products such as library cards, copying, printing, faxing, item replacement costs, book sale cart items, etc. still are necessary in order to cover the costs of and ensure continued services.
