Fines & Fees

Effective January 11, 2023, Cochrane Public Library’s Board of Trustees passed a motion to discontinue late fees for library materials. Eliminating late fees will permanently reduce barriers to accessing our resources and services. All existing late fees will be forgiven.

However, items not returned within 45 days of the due date will be identified as lost and a replacement fee will be applied to the member account.

Fines will still be charged for:

  • Replacement Cards - $5.00
  • Unclaimed Holds - $0.75
