Ida Rupp drops fines for late documents
PORT CLINTON – The Ida Rupp Public Library Board has changed library policies to eliminate fines for overdue library materials.
A growing number of Northwest Ohio libraries have already passed without fines, including Oak Harbor, Harris-Elmore, Birchard (Fremont), and Sandusky. The library board voted in favor of this decision to remove barriers to using the library.
Under the new policy, the due dates or loan periods for documents have not changed. Any item borrowed for longer than the maximum loan term will be considered overdue. If a borrower has three or more overdue documents, they will be prohibited from removing additional library material until the overdue material has been returned.
When an item is 30 days overdue, the item will be marked as lost and borrowers will be charged for the item. If the item is returned, the item’s invoice will be deleted from users’ accounts. Due to high demand, hotspots will still accumulate late fees of $ 2 per day. Any damaged item will incur replacement costs.
