Library Fines and Fees

Library implements new fines and fees policy

The Waterford Township Public Library (WTPL) is committed to providing materials that meet our patron needs. Non-returned books, CDs, DVDs and other items deprive other library customers of valuable pieces of our collection.

With this in mind, WTPL will be instituting new measures to encourage patrons to return library materials in a timely manner.

We have increased fines and fees but also extended loan periods on many of our items.

Note that your account is now accessible online. You can renew and check your account for overdue materials. Contact the library about setting up your account online.
