We’re Fine Free
Fountaindale Public Library District no longer charges daily late fines on overdue items. Even though we no longer charge late fines, we encourage you to please return materials in a responsible and timely fashion so others may enjoy the shared resources we provide.
Three Days Before Due Date: We will send a notification three days before and three days after your item(s) is due.
14 Days Overdue: Your library card will be blocked, suspending your borrowing and meeting room privileges.
28 Days Overdue: Your library account will remain blocked, and you will be billed the replacement cost of the overdue item(s).
42 Days Overdue: Your account (if more than $24.99 in replacement fees) will be sent to the collection agency. A $10 non-refundable collections fee will be added to your account. The item must be returned or paid for in full, and the non-refundable $10 collection agency fee must be paid in full to unblock your library card.
Please contact us at 630.759.2102 or view our frequently asked questions for more information.
Fees can be paid with cash or check at the 1st Floor Circulation Desk or by credit/debit card at one of the 13 self-check stations located throughout the library.
Payments can also be made through our catalog by logging into your library account and clicking “My Account” then “Fines & Fees”. Step-by-step instructions for paying fees through the online catalog is available in both English and Spanish.
