Late fees for overdue books and CDs have increased at libraries in Haywood County.
Habitually late bibliophiles previously paid 10 cents per day for every late book or CD, with the maximum charge being $10 per item. However, the Haywood County Board of Commissioners voted this week to up the daily fee to 25 cents per book and CD. Though, the maximum fine will remain at $10, and DVD late fees will remain at $1 a day.
The change puts the Haywood County libraries in line with the other libraries in the state.
