Fine-free Library!
In an effort to reduce barriers and increase access, the Sun Prairie Public Library Board recently adopted changes to our Circulation Policy.  The Sun Prairie Public Library no longer charges daily overdue fines for most materials*.  We hope these changes will increase library visits, and access for all our patrons.  Thank you for using YOUR library!
*Specialized collections such as Buzz Books, Rental DVDs, Video Games, Technology, and Storytime Kits will still be charged daily overdue fines.  Replacement fees will continue to be charged for lost or damaged items.
