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.
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.
