CCPL is a fine free library as of September 1, 2020. CCPL will be waiving all existing overdue fines from customer accounts. This policy ensures that all of our community members have equitable access to CCPL's resources and services, while eliminating the financial barrier of overdue fines. Customers who previously had outstanding account balances will be able to resume borrowing physical and digital materials and access online library resources. Please see full details on our Fine Free FAQ page.

Accounts with a balance of $50.00 or more for a period of 30 days will be sent to our collection agency.
When an account is sent to our collection agency, a $10.00 collections fee will be added to the customer account.
The purchase price will vary according to the material. As a courtesy CCPL will apply a 20% discount to the price listed in our catalog. In addition a $5.00 processing fee will be charged for each lost item. If an item is paid for and then returned within 90 days, the replacement cost will be refunded, not the processing fee. The replacement cost of material borrowed from McDaniel College or Carroll Community College will include processing fees charged by the owning library.
There is an annual charge of $25.00 for an out-of-state borrowing card. Exception is made for out-of-state employees of Carroll County Government, Carroll County Public Schools, Carroll Community College, and McDaniel College. Proper identification is required.
$.20 per side for Photocopies

If charges total $25.00 or more, 20 percent of the remaining balance must be paid each time the card is used. All charges should be paid within six months. For an explanation of any information above, please ask at the Circulation Desk in any branch library.
