Library is now fine free

Winfield Library is Fine Free
We are proud to announce we have permanently gone fine free and will no longer charge any fines for materials returned after the due date. Although there remains a cost for lost or damaged library materials, old overdue fines have been removed and every library cardholder has a clean slate. We are also continuing to automatically renew items with no pending holds up to two times.

Please note, borrowed items still have a due date and we appreciate them being returned on time. You will continue to get due date reminders.
