Overdue Materials & Replacement Fees
As of July 1, 2020, the Roselle Public Library District has eliminated overdue fines. If you have been unable to access all that the Library has to offer due to fines you have been unable to pay, you may now resume use of the Library! If you have been reluctant to use your public library, avoiding the hassle of fines and the possibility of debt, feel free to explore this valuable community resource.
We would like both our patrons and materials to return. Although there are no longer late fees, materials will be categorized as overdue after a certain length of time. Overdue notices are sent for items 12 days, 24 days and 36 days past due. Patrons will be billed for items not returned after 36 days overdue. If this item is not returned to the Library within 59 days, the item will be categorized "LOST" and the full replacement cost, plus a processing fee, will be charged. Borrowing privileges will be suspended if fees equal $10.00 or more, until the late fees are paid.
