NO MORE LATE FEES FOR LPL CHILDREN/YOUNG ADULT BOOKS!

Lunenburg Public Library is pleased to announce that we are removing overdue fines for books in our Childrens and Young Adult collections!  You will still be responsible for replacement fees if you lose items, and overdue charges will still accumulate if you check out Adult books, any DVDs, or any video games that are returned late.  We still ask you to return items on time, so that other readers can enjoy them after you!  If you feel guilty about being late, we are able to accept donations to our Friends of the Lunenburg Public Library in whatever amount you feel is appropriate.  If you want more information, start with this document HERE, and we are always happy to answer questions!
