Waukegan Public Library Offers Payment Plan for Fines

Beginning August 1, Waukegan Public Library patrons can sign up for a new payment plan to gradually reconcile any outstanding fines. The library will reinstate computer and checkout privileges for patrons who pay as little as 10 percent of what they owe, so long as they pay a minimum of 10 percent of the total fine each time they check out materials or use a computer.

While on the payment plan, patrons may check out up to two items at a time, excluding BluRays, DVDs, videogames and interlibrary loan materials. If those items are not returned and are then billed to the patron, checkout privileges will be revoked.
