New Brunswick Free Public Library is a Fine-Free Library!

New Brunswick Free Public Library is no longer charging fines on items that are returned late. Previously existing fines for everything except Lost and Damaged items have been waived.

  • Why is New Brunswick Free Public Library going fine-free?
  • What happens if someone doesn’t return their items?
    • The library is going fine-free, but we still have due dates. If materials are not renewed or returned, the account the materials were borrowed on is blocked and the cardholder billed. In most cases, returning the materials will clear the account. The cost of lost and damaged items will still be billed to the borrower.
  • What about materials from other LMxAC Libraries? What about Interlibrary Loan?
    • All materials checked out at the New Brunswick Free Public Library will be fine-free. If you pick up or return materials at another LMxAC library, those materials may still incur fines, depending on that library’s policies.
  • Wait, I considered my fines a donation to the Library!
    • The library will still gladly accept monetary donations!
