The Hartland Library is now charging overdue fees for late materials:


Hartland Public Library Fees:




Overdue Adult Materials (books, etc)

$0.20 per day, per item

Overdue Juvenile Materials (books, puppets, etc)

$0.20 per day, per item

Videos, DVD’s, Playaways

$1.00 per day

Lost Library Cards

$1.00 each

Lost Library material

Cost of item plus overdue fines plus $5.00 processing fee


$0.25 per page

Printing at computer station

$0.25 per page




There will be a reminder call after items are overdue 14 days with a second notice call after the item is overdue at least 20 days.  After 6 months, a third notice in the form of a bill will be sent for the cost of the item plus all fines accrued to that time and a $5.00 processing fee.  Failure to receive a notice will not be considered grounds for waiving a fine.  A printed receipt for payment for lost and damaged items will be given to the patron.  Prompt payment of overdue fines, replacement costs and a processing fee for lost materials is expected.  Borrowing privileges are suspended if there is an overdue item for which the replacement cost has been assessed or a fine(s) has accrued in excess of $10.00.  Borrower accounts exceeding $100.00 in fines and/or unreturned materials, or exceeds 1 year will be sent to a sheriff for collection with the patron incurring all processing costs.


If a patron claims to have returned an item, a search will be made by both the Library “staff” and the patron.  A determination will then be made as to whether the item will be removed from the patron’s record.


Exceptions:  Residents proving undue stress or medical illness may be exempt from fines on a case-by-case basis.  Being on vacation is not a valid reason for unreturned, non-renewed items, lost or damaged items.


Maximum fine:  There is a maximum fine of $5.00 each for all overdue library materials returned within one year, exclusive of damage to materials.
