What if I have fines or fees for overdue/lost/damaged books?

As of November 10, 2021, items returned late to the UDPL will no longer accrue daily overdue fines, and the UDPL will no longer collect them. However, patrons are strongly encouraged to return items, particularly those for which others are waiting, on time. Anyone failing to return reservable items on or before their due date, such as museum passes and circulating technology, may be prohibited from future borrowing from these collections. Items returned late to other libraries in Montgomery County, regardless of which library from which they came or were borrowed, may accrue overdue fines on your account.

If you need to pay for a lost or damaged item, you can make your payment through your online account. Alternatively, you can pay by check at the service window or at one of the library service desks.
