July 1st, 2021: Prairie Trails Public Library District has eliminated most overdue fines

 

The Prairie Trails Public Library District has been "fine free for now" since March of 2020, and will continue to waive overdue fines until (at least) June 30, 2022!

What does this mean?

This means that no overdue fines are charged for any material that is checked out at our library, with a few exceptions (listed below). Checked-out items do still have due dates, though, and library cards will be blocked when an item reaches 14 days overdue. When the item is returned, that block will be automatically removed. Patrons will be automatically charged a replacement fee for any items that have reached 42 days overdue. Lost and damaged items will still accrue fines. If an assumed-lost item is returned, the associated fine will be automatically removed. 

Loan periods for all items are listed in the table below. 

Note:

As listed above, Chromebooks, wi-fi hotspots, and Launchpads will continue to accrue overdue fines. Memory kits also accrue overdue fines. 

Chromebooks and wi-fi hotspots have a lending period of 2 weeks and will accrue overdue fines of $3.00 per day.
Launchpads have a lending period of 1 week and will accrue overdue fines of $2.00 per day.
Memory/Reminisce Kits have a lending periods of 1 week and will accrue overdue fines of $2.00 per day.
