Does your child have Library fines? Good news! We are forgiving fines for all students during the month of September! Simply return any items that are currently checked out, or arrange to replace the items (by talking to our staff), and all fines and other charges will be cleared! And, as long as materials are returned to the Library, even if they are a bit late, there will no late fees for elementary or secondary students going forward.

Homework and Research
