Have you heard? >>
Big news about overdues! North Kansas City Public Library is no longer charging a fee for overdue materials. (Yes, really!) As part of our ongoing commitment to making the Library accessible to all our patrons, we are changing the way we handle overdues--as we don't want these fees to become a barrier to library use. Have you noticed lingering overdue fines on your card? Let us know, and we'll remove them.
The Library WILL still bill for lost or damaged items. So if you keep an item for months, you'll still get a bill. Ditto for items that puppy dog ate. But those pesky overdues that pile up when books are a little late?? Those are no more. So happy spring! And hope to see you around the Library soon!
