What's Happening at the Library
Overdue Fines: What's Changing?
The library’s goal is to ensure patrons can access its books and services. Overdue fines can prevent some patrons, especially children, from checking out materials. MCPL does not rely on fines to run the library. Going forward, the library will not be charging overdue fines on most materials. | Click here to learn more »
