Fine and Fee Policy

The Anoka County Library Advisory Board shall annually review, recommend to the Anoka County Board of Commissioners, and publish a schedule of fines and fees that may include fines for overdue materials and charges for other services as shall be deemed necessary. Overdue fines will be charged for the express purpose of encouraging the prompt return of materials so that access to such items is enhanced for other borrowers. Charges may include collection fees and revenue recapture if a borrower's account is referred to a collection agency or another Anoka County department due to non-return of materials. Recommended changes will be referred to the Anoka County Board of Commissioners for its consideration at its semi-annual fee review hearing.

Fine and Fee Schedule


This policy is reviewed by the Library Advisory Board (or a committee thereof) every four (4) years, or more frequently when deemed appropriate. The Library Advisory Board may recommend proposed changes subject to final approval by the Library Director and the Anoka County Board of Commissioners.
