Good News! 

Beginning Monday, February, 22, Highland Park Public Library will no longer charge overdue fines for most items.

Here's How It Works:

  • Fines are fees charged for overdue library materials. “Fine free” refers to eliminating fees charged for returning library materials after their due date.
  • Most items will now be fine free.
  • While you will no longer be charged a fine, after a Highland Park Public Library item is two weeks overdue, your account will be blocked. Additional items cannot be checked out until the overdue item is returned (books, CDs, DVDs, etc.). Additionally, access to our digital collections (downloads from Libby, hoopla, kanopy, etc.) and databases will be blocked.
  • Items will still have due dates and need to be returned in good condition. If items are kept 45 days past their due date or are damaged, you will be charged for the replacement cost. Replacement copies are not accepted.
  • Overdue fines will still be charged for certain items: Roku sticks, mobile hotspots, interlibrary loan requests, cameras, projectors, tripods, portable hard-drives, Kill-A-Watts, and ukeleles.
  • Please note that materials checked out at other libraries are subject to their fine policies.
  • Automatic renewals will still be in effect. New items will only renew once; older items will renew twice. An item will not renew if someone else is waiting for it.
