Livingston Municipal Library

Fines and Late Fees

Late charges are as follows:

Books, DVDs, magazines - $0.25 per item per day

Music CDs & audiobooks - $2.00 per item per day

Fines are charged up to the list or replacement cost of the item, or $20.00, whichever is greater. Fines for donated paperbacks are charged up to $5.00 per paperback.  

A grace period of one week is allowed for overdue books, audiobooks, DVDs, music CDs, and magazines.  If overdue items are returned within this 7 day period, no fines will be owed. 

Items NOT returned during the grace period will accumulate overdue charges beginning the day after the grace period expires. Fines continue to accrue over weekends and holidays, and customers are encouraged to use the book drop for returning items when the library is closed.  The book drop is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
