The library will no longer charge overdue fines for kids’ and teen materials. Why? Because we want kids to read!
So check out as many items as you want without worrying
about being charged a late fine.

If your family checks out children’s, middle reader or young adult books at the Skaneateles Library, your life is about to get a little easier. As of June 25, the library is no longer charging overdue fines on any materials in the children’s, middle reader and young adult collections, including Early Literacy Kits, Discovery Backpacks and DVDs in the Family section.

The new policy was approved by unanimous vote at the June 12th meeting of the library board. The library has also forgiven all current fines for these items that had already accrued for Skaneateles Library cardholders.

Because of the costs of buying and processing new materials, borrowers who lose or damage these items will still be charged for the replacement costs. However, there will be no fines at all if the items are returned to the library in good condition.
