CLPL is Fine Free!

We are happy to announce Crystal Lake Public Library is now fine free!

Here are the details:

No overdue fines will be charged for items checked out at the Crystal Lake Public Library

If an item is not returned within two weeks of the due date:

  • Patron’s card is blocked
  • Patron can’t check out any physical or electronic materials, or use electronic resources (databases)
  • Patron is billed for the replacement cost of the item (at 45 days overdue)

Fees for items that are lost or damaged still apply.

Mobile Hotspots:

For mobile hotspots that are more than one day overdue, the service will be turned off (essentially rendering the hotspot useless). A patron’s card will be blocked until the hotspot is returned.
