A $1.00 fee is charged to replace a library card that is reported lost. This fee applies to both adults and minors.
The Library's fine structure for overdue materials is based on what type of card you have, the kind of materials you have borrowed, and how late you are in returning them.
For adults, fines on most items are $.05 per day, per item, with a $3.00 maximum. Paperbacks reach a $.50 maximum.
For cards issued to minors, fines on most items are $.05 per day, per item, with a $.50 maximum.
Fines on videocassettes, DVDs, games, book boxes, book bags, and toys are $.50 per day per item, with a limit of $5.00 for adults and $2.50 for minors.
Book Club in a Bag items are issued only on adult cards. Fines are $1.00 per item per day with a limit of $10.00.
You may continue to check out additional materials until your fines total $15.00. Library fines can be paid at all St. Louis Public Library locations or from your card account.
