No Overdue Fines

Late items returned to the Marlborough Public Library on Wednesdays will not generate fines.  Some items will not be affected by fine free Wednesdays, such as Speed Reads, late museum passes and some items borrowed from libraries outside of the CW MARS library network. The library will also assess a fee for lost or damaged items.
