Does your Child or Teen Owe Library Fines?

Between September 22 and October 31, children and teens who have fines on their library cards can ask to have them waived.
If you are a child or teen who owes fines, has long overdue material, or has lost library material, you can visit any Brooklyn Public Library location and ask for the fines to be waived.
For those who have long overdue material, we ask that you return them to any customer service desk for the fines to be waived.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I get my overdue fines waived?
We will waive all fines for children and teens who visit Brooklyn Public Library and ask for amnesty. In order to complete the process, you must borrow at least one item.
Fines cannot be waived if overdue materials are left in internal or external book drops.

How soon will my overdue fines be cleared?
Your overdue fines will be cleared from your record as soon as the request for amnesty is made at the customer service desk.
Accounts that have been referred to the collection agency will need to wait 24 hours before the collection fee is removed. You can still check out new material when you visit the Library.
