Two Harbors Public Library

No late fees

Effective June 1, there will no longer be late fees for Two Harbors Public Library-owned library materials returned beyond the standard checkout period. However, we strongly encourage patrons to return materials within the standard checkout period to allow other members of the community the opportunity to enjoy those library materials as well.

Items that belong to another library that are checked out at the Two Harbors Public Library will accrue fines according to the owning library’s policy.

Please note that the library still charges replacement fees for lost items and damaged items. Once a library card has over five overdue items, the library will no longer lend materials to the patron until the overdue items have been returned or replacement fees were paid.
