Fine Free!

The Trustees of the Library have voted to remove overdue fees and long lost processing fees from all Douglas items. We have been waiving fines since the beginning of the pandemic, but now it is permanent. So moving forward:

  1. No overdue fees will accumulate on your items if you forget to bring them back in time.
  2. If you ignore all the automated messages saying your items are due, you will eventually be charged a replacement cost for the item as it will be marked as LOST on your account.
  3. If you bring back the lost item, though, the fines all go away.

This policy applies to items owned by our library, but every library in CWMARS has its own circulation and fine policies. So if you get the item on hold from another library, fines may still apply.
