You library is forever... FINE FREE!
We are excited to announce that Waterloo Public Library is now permanently fine free! This means that customers will no longer be charged overdue fines. By removing financial barriers like overdue fines, our goal is to make it easier for everyone to access library services.  

After almost 2 years of being fine-free during COVID, we are happy that this is becoming a permanent change so that we can provide more equitable service to our community.

A reminder that:

  • Due dates for borrowed items are listed on your checkout receipt and on My Account. 
  • Customers are still responsible for returning or renewing borrowed items on time 
  • Borrowed items can be returned to any of our Waterloo Public Library locations
  • You can choose to receive a courtesy email to alert you 3 days before your borrowed items are due. You can also choose to get overdue notices by email or by phone.
