Charlotte Mecklenburg Library

Fine Free at the Library

Life Happens, Fines Don't.

That's Charlotte Mecklenburg Library's policy as of July 1, 2021. With this change, the Library is also offering a one time amnesty to all Library cardholders. This means on July 1, 2021,  all cardholders will see all fines and fees removed from their accounts and return to a $0.00 balance.

The elimination of late or overdue fines policy is part of the Library’s Fiscal Year 2022 budget.  See the borrower policy page for more information.
