Circulation Periods & Fines


Each member library is given a tab within this large shared spreadsheet  Please update your library's loan periods and fines by format at least twice a year. Contact the MCFLS LSA if you do not have access to the above spreadsheet.  The goal is to have the above spreadsheet match what you have listed on your library web pages.  Use the links below to quickly refer to what the policies are at all of our libraries.


Patrons may use PayPal or a credit/debit card online via their CountyCat record to pay fines. Look below at our list of member libraries accepting and not accepting credit card/debit card payment on-site. Staff should also consult insert R-22 which outlines the MCFLS Accounting Procedure for Collecting Money on behalf of Other Libraries (for non-owning libraries). The R-22 procedure listed there replaces the former cash bag system and includes full and/or partial fine collection of monies over five dollars.
