Fines

Cornwall Public Library is Now Fine-Free

Our commitment to provide fair and accessible service to our entire community has led us to permanently abolish overdue fines. We are now fine-free. This means you will no longer be charged overdue fines on late materials.

How long can I keep my library items?

Most available items can be borrowed for three weeks. Provided there are no holds on an item, it will automatically renew twice.

Bring them back!

We ask that you return your items to the library in a timely manner so others may enjoy them as well.

Returning Materials

You can safely return your library materials to our drive-up drop-box, conveniently located just outside our back entrance at Sydney Street, or inside the library.

Damaged or Lost Items

Life happens! We will send you a notice if an item is long overdue, lost or returned in damaged condition, you will be responsible for the replacement cost of the item.
