Orange County Library Board of Trustees Eliminates Daily Late Fines

The Orange County Library Board of Trustees voted to eliminate daily late fines for overdue materials and the clearing of all existing overdue fines from library accounts effective January 1, 2023.

What Does It Mean for Library Cardholders?

• No daily late fines charged on overdue items (except Wi - Fi hotspots)

• Existing late fines will be cleared from all library accounts

• Wi - Fi hotspots will still be subject to a late fine of $1.00 per day

• Existing charges for lost and damaged materials will remain on accounts

An overdue book or media item should be returned within a reasonable amount of time. Orange County Public Library items kept longer than 30 days past the due date will block a customer ’ s account from additional check outs. The library will continue to charge a lost fee for items which have not been returned by 60 days past their due date.
