The Fine Free pilot program started on June 1, 2021.

Old fines? If you have old fines or fees on your account please contact the library to discuss amnesty options that may be available so you can start using your card. We would love to see you again!

Overdue items? There will be no late fines on items that are returned within 30 days of being overdue. Any item overdue by 30 days will go to "Lost" and the patron account will be blocked from borrowing until that item is returned.

Lost or damaged items? Fees that apply to lost or damaged items will still be charged. It pays to take care of the items you borrow! The fine free program applies only to overdue fines.

What are the exceptions? Certain types of materials will still accrue overdue fines. Fine Free applies to MCL’s materials, not our location. Items owned by other Berks County Public Libraries that are not participating in the Fine Free pilot may incur late fine charges. Overdue fines will still be charged on the following items:

  • Items owned by other Berks County Public Libraries not participating in the Fine Free pilot
  • Reading Public Museum Passes
  • Berks History Center Passes
  • Elmwood Park Zoo Passes
  • Interlibrary Loans (materials borrowed from outside the county)
  • T-Mobile WiFi Hotspots
