Late Fees

  • Following the lead of many libraries around the country, including the wonderful Tompkins County Public Library, we're going fine freeThis will provide more flexibility for our members, streamline our check in process, and relieve the burden on our volunteers to collect fees.  All this said, we do still want our items back! You will continue to receive regular reminders and overdue notices from us.  In lieu of late fees, toy library accounts with items more than 30 days overdue will be frozen until the overdue items are returned.  At this time, the member will receive an email notice.  If items are still not returned, the member will be asked to pay for a replacement item. 
  • Potential fees for missing parts and broken toys will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
  • Membership may be suspended if fees are accumulated and remain unpaid.
