Library Fees
Payment Options
You can pay library fees using:
  • Cash or check at any branch service desk
  • Credit or debit card at some self-checkout stations

Library Fees
  • $3 for a replacement library card
  • $60 a year for a library card for non-Minnesota residents or Minnesota residents whose city or county does not participate in a Minnesota regional library system
  • Replacement cost for damaged items
    • If a library item is returned in a condition that makes it unusable, it is considered damaged
  • Replacement price for unreturned or lost items
    • Items that check out for three weeks are considered lost when they are six weeks overdue. Items that check out for one week are considered lost when they are three weeks overdue. If a library user pays for an item, and later finds the item, the payment will not be returned
  • $8 recovery fee for each item that is not returned before being considered lost
    • To avoid the $8 recovery fee, return items by their due dates or renew items that you want to keep longer. If you misplace, damage, or lose a library item, pay the replacement price before you receive a bill for the item
  • $0.10 per page for photocopies
  • $0.15 per page for printing from a computer
  • $0.70 per page for color photocopies

If you have unpaid fees on your library account, borrowing privileges are suspended until the fees have been resolved.

Washington County Library does not charge daily fines for overdue materials.
