Borrowing Guidelines

The Northfield Public Library no longer charges overdue fines for Northfield Library-owned items that are returned after their due date. 

Other libraries may charge different overdue fine amounts on their materials borrowed by Northfield cardholders.  They may have different loan periods.

Replacement costs for lost items are charged to the cardholder, along with a $5.00 processing fee. Payment of lost items that are returned will be credited to the cardholder if the item is returned within 6 months of payment.
