   Lewisville Public Library eliminates overdue fines
   The Lewisville Public Library is proud to announce that effective today , Friday , May 20 , all existing overdue fines are forgiven , and the library will no longer charge overdue fines for materials returned late .
   Eliminating overdue fines is a significant change in Lewisville’s continued efforts to promote library access , especially among communities that need library services the most .
   Under this new system , instead of imposing a fine ......, a patron’s library card will be temporarily frozen until past - due materials are returned . Once those items are returned or successfully renewed , the library card will be active again .
   Overdue fines for mobile hotspots and other fees – such as damage fees – will remain . Patrons still will pay replacement fees for lost materials , which will be considered lost after being overdue for more than 30 days . If materials are returned between that time and 90 days overdue , the replacement fee will be waived and only a $5 processing fee will remain .
   The Lewisville Public Library joins a nationwide movement to eliminate overdue fines . In 2019 , the American Library Association passed a resolution recognizing fines as a form of “social inequity . ” Libraries across the country have seen an increase in returns and library card sign - ups following the elimination of overdue fines .
