Overdue book fines may go up

July 26th, 2010 · No Comments

That overdue library book may soon cost you a little more.  The Seattle Public Library is considering a hike in fines to help offset its budget woes.  Here’s a look at some of the proposed fines:

  • The daily fine for an overdue book, CD, or DVD would change from 15 cents a day to 25 cents a day.
  • The daily fine for an overdue interlibrary loan (an item borrowed from outside The Seattle Public Library) would change from 25 cents a day to $1 a day.
  • The daily fine for an overdue reference resource would change from 15 cents a day to $1 a day.

The Library Board will take public comment on the proposed changes at its 4:30pm Wednesday, Aug. 25 meeting at the Central Library on 4th Avenue.
