No late fees on returns through Christmas

Paris Public Library is offering a month of no late fees on all overdue books, DVDs, and other library materials returned beginning Thanksgiving through Christmas Day. Late fees will not be charged on anything returned during this time – whether it’s just days overdue or “lost” years ago.

Items may be returned at the library or in the drop box in front of the library. Questions? Call 217-463-3950 or contact us via email.
