Beginning July 1st 2016, DVD and video overdue fees will be $1.00 per day at the Sidney Library. Other fines remain the same (10 cents for most items).
Our other policies regarding overdues and fine remains the same: Library privileges will be revoked for any patrons having overdue materials. Patrons will be restricted from borrowing library materials and logging onto the public computers. Privileges are restored when materials are returned and fines are paid.
