We are Fines Free

We do not charge late fees for overdue materials! Below is an outline of how we'll remind you and when you will be charged to replace the items.

3 Days Before Due Date

We'll send you a courtesy reminder email.

7 Days Overdue

We'll send you an email or paper notice.

14 Days Overdue

Your account will be charged for the full replacement value of the item. We'll send you a bill in the mail. Your Addison Public Library card will be unusable until the item is returned or paid for in full.

35 Days Overdue

Your account (if owing more than $25 in replacement fees) will be sent to the collection agency. A $11.65 non-refundable collections fee will be added to your account. The item must be returned or paid for in full, and the non-refundable $11.65 collection agency fee must be paid in full.

Please contact the Addison Public Library at 630.543.3617 with questions about our Fines Free policy.
