Greenfield Library Offering Fine Forgiveness

Greenfield Library is offering to waive fines if residents bring in food items for Hunger Task Force.

During January, donate non-perishable food items to Hunger Task Force and have eligible fines waived.

Anyone who returns an overdue book, DVD, or CD owned by the Greenfield Public Library can have eligible fines forgiven in exchange for donating food items to Hunger Task Force. 

Bring your old library card if you still have it, and a current photo ID.

For each long overdue Greenfield Library item returned, the Library will waive the charges in exchange for the donation of two nonperishable food items.*  A maximum of 5 long overdue items are eligible for the program and all fine forgiveness must take place in person at the Library during one visit.

If you have long overdue items, but can no longer find the items, the Library will waive fines with donations of non-perishable food items to Hunger Task Force up to a maximum of $25.00.  Each item donated will reduce your outstanding fines by $2.50. Late fees will also be waived, up to maximum of $25.00, with the donation of non-perishable food items.  Each item will reduce your fines account by $2.50.

Only materials owned by the Greenfield Library are eligible for this program, so fine forgiveness does not apply to items owned by other libraries within the Milwaukee County Federated Library System. The maximum amount of eligible fines waived will be for the return of 5 long overdue items or $25.00 in overdue fines, or $25.00 in fines associated with long overdue items not returned.  For those with larger fines and fees, affordable payment plans will be available.
