Des Plaines Public Library raises and lowers fines

November 17, 2011

A brief article in today’s Chicago Trib reports that starting next January patrons in Des Plaines will pay 10c more for overdue fines on books and CDs, from 15c a day to 25c. The fine on DVDs, however, will be lowered by half–from $1.00 to 50c. The library hopes to generate $10,000 more in revenue with the new fine structure.
