How much will it cost if I return materials late? (Fines & Fees)

Racine Public Library materials do not have late fines. The late charges for all non-Racine library materials are $.25 per item, per day. Fines will not be charged for Sundays or holiday closings.

 

The library sends notices when materials are overdue. If you have an email account that you check regularly, you should add your email address to your patron account, since this is the fastest way to receive an overdue notice. Email notifications are an additional courtesy service in conjunction with the date due receipts given at the time of check out.
