Fines and Fees

To encourage the prompt return of materials, the Evergreen Indiana libraries have established a schedule of fines and fees as an encouragement for the timely return of materials by their due dates. Overdue materials incur fines of 25¢ per day per item with a $10.00 fine cap per item.

Evergreen Indiana library fines and fees shall be paid at the billing library. Patrons may pay all or a portion of overdue fines. A patron’s record will remain blocked or barred if they are over the $10.00 cap until the fines and fees are paid or the patron has resolved the matter with the particular library to restore his or her privileges.
