IF YOU HAVE A LIBRARY BOOK OR RECORDING THAT’S OVERDUE AT THE SIOUX CITY PUBLIC LIBRARY, YOU MAY NOW RETURN IT WITHOUT PENALTY.

LIBRARY DIRECTOR HELEN RIGDON SAYS FINES HAVE BEEN ABOLISHED:

THE SIOUX CITY PUBLIC LIBRARY HAD ALREADY BEEN WAIVING OVERDUE FINES FOR THE PAST YEAR, BEGINNING WHEN THEY CLOSED AT THE START OF THE PANDEMIC.

RIGDON SAYS STAFF FOUND THAT PATRONS RETURNED ITEMS RESPONSIBLY, EVEN WITHOUT THE ENCOURAGEMENT FINES HAVE LONG BEEN THOUGHT TO INSPIRE:

WHILE FULL-SERVICE SIOUX CITY PUBLIC LIBRARY CARDHOLDERS WILL NO LONGER HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT OVERDUE CHARGES, THE LIBRARY WILL CONTINUE TO CHARGE FOR LOST OR DAMAGED ITEMS.
