Due to the rising cost of utilities, insurance, maintenance fees, etc. the San Manuel Library must raise fees and fines to help pay for these monthly expenditures.  Fees, fines and much appreciated donations are the only source of  income the Library has to support its building expenses. 

The use of books, DVDs, computers and video games are still FREE.  Fines only occur when items are returned late. Prices of copies and faxes are increasing but are still a good value.  The new fees/fines price in increase will begin May 1, 2013.  Below is the list of new charges.

Late fees for all checked out items: 50 cents per day

Black and white copies: 20 cents per page

Color copies: 50 cents per page

Fax: $1.25 per page

  Replacement fees for lost items will still be based on the cost to the library to replace the item.

  If you have overdue items please come in before May 1 to clear your account before the price hike goes into effect.
