Public libraries in Lancaster County will increase fines on certain overdue materials effective on April 1. Increases will apply to adult and juvenile materials as follows: fines on the late return of adult and YA materials will increase from 20 cents per day to 30 cents per day and from 10 per day to 20 per day for children’s materials. Fines for videos and DVDs, which is $1 per item per day, will remain the same.
Public Libraries have experienced reduced state and county funding for 2010, which factored into the decision to increase extended use fees at Lancaster County’s public libraries. The increases come at a critical time when local funding for library services remains flat and state funding was reduced, impacting all public library budgets, while demand for library services continues to rise.
The public can easily avoid these charges by keeping their library account up to date and renewing checked out items either by phone 394-1721 or online at http://catalog.lancasterlibraries.org. Please note that not all library materials are subject to renewal. If a patron’s account includes an email address, an email reminder is sent out before materials are due.
For more information, please contact your local public library. For a complete list of Lancaster County’s public libraries, go to www.lancasterlibraries.org and select Your Local Library.
