Overdue Fine Rate Change
- Beginning Oct. 1, 2018, the Haltom City Public Library will no longer charge fines for overdue HCPL materials
What is Changing?
Any MetrOPAC library patron that checks out Haltom City Public Library materials will no longer be charged the $0.20 a day fine for overdue materials. Cardholders will blocked from checking out additional materials if there is an overdue, lost, missing part, or damaged item on their account.
What is Not Changing?
Patrons will still be responsible for overdue fines for other MetrOPAC libraries’ materials.
Patrons will continue to be billed replacement fees for ALL materials that are not returned, are lost, or are returned damaged.
Library cards will continue to be blocked for fine accruals of $5.00 or more. Fine accruals include, but are not limited to, lost items, damaged items, missing parts, card replacement fees, and other MetrOPAC libraries’ overdue fines.
