Throughout National Library Week, April 13-19, 2014, patrons will be able to return overdue or billed materials to a service desk and have fines and unpaid replacement costs waived from their accounts. Please note that this opportunity does not apply to Studio 300 equipment and Nooks.
Food for Fines
The annual Food for Fines program during National Library Week gives you the opportunity to eliminate or reduce your fines. For each unexpired canned, boxed, bagged or bottled non-perishable food item that you bring in, the library will remove $2.00 from your overdue fines up to $20.00. All food items received will be donated to the DuPage Township Food Pantry. Please note, Food for Fines does not apply to the $10.00 fee assessed for patrons whose accounts are currently in Collections.
You can send us a question via text message using your cell phone! Text the keyword askfpld to 66746 to set up your phone to work with the service. After receiving the welcome message, you can then send questions to 66746 – without using the keyword – and an Adult & Teen Services staff member will reply. Please note: if your cell plan provider charges for text messaging those rates will apply.
Service hours are Monday through Thursday, 9:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.; Friday and Saturday 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Sunday 12:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. If you send a question during off-hours, a staff member will get back to you the next available opportunity.
