No overdue fines will be assessed on children’s materials owned by the Muskego Library checked out on cards belonging to patrons under the age of eighteen. The maximum overdue fine for any item returned in good condition is $10.00 or the replacement price, whichever is less.

Cards with $10.00 or more in fines will be blocked from checking out materials until the fine is paid.
