Fine Free Week at Falls Church City Library

Fine Free Week at Falls Church City Library

From the City of Falls Church:

Falls Church City’s Mary Riley Styles Public Library is offering “Fine Free Week” Feb. 14-19.  Fines will be forgiven on all items that are overdue and returned during that time.  However, fines for previously overdue items and fees for lost or damaged items will not be waived from patron records.

“Fine Free Week” will serve as a transition to the new 25¢-a-day overdue fine that goes into effect on March 1.  The Library Board of Trustees recently approved the increase (from the current 20¢-a-day fine) to be more in line with neighboring library systems (most of which already charge 30¢ or more).  The DVD and video overdue fine will remain $1 per day per item.

Additionally, the Library Board approved a $3 charge -- also starting March 1 -- for all interlibrary loan requests to cover associated postage costs.  This service is available only for residents of the City of Falls Church.

Falls Church City Library Foundation Welcomes Year-End Donations

From the City of Falls Church:

With a new year fast approaching, please think of the Mary Riley Styles Public Library Foundation Trust as you make year-end charitable donations.

The Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) organization that helps support the City of Falls Church Mary Riley Styles Public Library, which was recently nationally recognized for its outstanding service for the third year in a row. Money from generous donors to the Foundation helps supplement the funding received from the City government. In recent years, contributors have funded the wireless networking capability at the Library, purchased additional books, books-on-disc, and DVDs for the collection, and paid for the prizes given to young adults who won the library sponsored poetry contest. This past year it also provided money for the National Library Week celebration at the Library and teen software and computer equipment.
