The library is closed until further notice. Due dates are extended to May 1st; no overdue fines will accrue. If you need assistance, you can leave us a message at 315-685-5135 and we’ll get back to you soon. You can also email help@skanlibrary.org.

Fines & Fees

Getting a library card is FREE, but we do charge late fines for overdue adult items.

No overdue fines are charged for kids’ and teen materials, including Early Literacy Kits, Discovery Backpacks and DVDs in the Family section. Why? Because we want kids to read!

Because of the costs of buying and processing new materials, borrowers who lose or damage any items will still be charged for the replacement costs. However, there will be no fines at all if the items are returned to the library in good condition.
