Which items are fine free?

Any item checked out at the Melrose Park Public Library will not accumulate overdue fines!

What if the item was sent from another library?

As long as it was checked out at the MPPL there will be no overdue fines.

What if I don’t return an item?

Your library card will be blocked when an item checked out at the MPPL becomes 14 days overdue. When that item is returned and checked-in, the block will be immediately removed.

Will I have to pay a replacement cost for a lost or damaged item?

Yes. Unreturned items will be automatically billed at 42 days overdue. Patrons will be responsible for the replacement cost of a damaged item.
