We are now a Fine-Free Library!

The Wells Public Library is happy to announce that overdue fines will no longer be charged. Items will still have a due date and should be renewed if you wish to keep them longer, but there will be no fine if you return it past its due date.

If an item is more than four weeks overdue, a replacement cost will be charged to the patron’s account. However, if the item is returned in good condition, that charge will be waived.

We hope that this will make the library an even more enjoyable experience for all!
Please reach out if you have any questions.
