Fines & Fees

To avoid overdue charges, materials can be easily renewed by phone (651-450-2999), by computer from home or in the library, or by calling the library. You may also sign up for e-mail notification of materials coming due in the next three days.

Overdue fines are charged to encourage library users to return items for others to use and enjoy.
