Pay Fees, Renewals and Overdues

Many circulating materials can be renewed. Items that can be renewed will be renewed automatically twice as long as they are renewable and no one has the item on hold. You can also renew materials at the Library, by phone at 978-546-6934, or through our online catalog. Those that are non-renewable are museum passes, the library of things, and lucky day titles.

Currently, the library is fine free for overdue materials. After 49 days the item will be determined to be lost and the patron will owe the cost of the item until the item is returned or the amount paid. Patron borrowing privileges are blocked when fines accrue to $20.00 or when 20 items are overdue, regardless of bill reason.

Fees for lost items can be paid by cash or check at the main desk or children’s desk at the library. If the amount owed is over $5.00 it can also be paid through the online catalog with a credit card.
