What's the Difference Between Fines and Fees?

Mooresville Public Library is now fine free! Once books are returned, they are placed in quarantine for 72 business hours prior to being checked in. So, what’s the difference between fines and fees?

Fines are daily penalties assessed for returning library materials late. We are now fine free!

What are fees?

Fees are replacement charges assessed for true material loss for items that are not returned or damaged items and may include a reprocessing fee to replace the item. Fee schedules are approved annually by the Mooresville Board of Commissioners
