Daily library overdue fees were eliminated in the FY21 Arlington County Budget. No new daily overdue fees will accrue after July 1, 2020. Overdue fees of $ .30 per day, with a maximum overdue fee of $9.00 per item, charged before July 1, 2020 remain due on library accounts. Lost material fees and other service fees still apply.
Library fines are not waived as a matter of course, but we do consider one-time exceptions in extenuating circumstances. Please use this form to tell us about your circumstance and a supervisor will review this request.
While the library will email reminders about items, we cannot guarantee delivery of these messages. Failure to receive a reminder notice does not waive the customer’s responsibility for the timely return of materials or any fines incurred. If you are running any spam-blocking features, or have a Verizon, Mindspring, Earthlink, or Comcast account, be sure that you can receive email from the “LibCustomerServices@arlingtonva.us” address.
