Paying a Late Fee

Patrons are liable for any fees/fines associated with their account, and on accounts of patrons 17 and under for whom they are legally responsible. Fines are paid at the Check-Out Desk and are charged for each day that Beloit Public Library (BPL) is open. Maximum fines are $5.00 per item with no overall maximum fine limit per BPL card. A BPL card may not be used for checkout when fines reach a total of $10.01 or greater.

If you have questions about fines or overdue notices, please visit the Check-Out Desk or call 608-364-2911.

  • All feature movies, Vagabond Bears, and eReaders are $1.00 per day.

  • All other: Adult, JUV, and YA items are $.20 per day.

Overdue notices

Currently, an overdue notice is sent out (via email OR phone) once an item is two weeks overdue. A second, final and billed, notice is sent (via mail) once items are four weeks overdue; additionally, accounts are then subject to Municipal Court citations or collection agency intervention.
