Monday, August 31 through Friday, September 4, 2015


How does it work?

  1. You owe Shorewood Library overdue fines.
  2. You come to the library with your library card or a current photo ID.
  3. We waive your Shorewood Library overdue fines.

What we can't waive:

  1. Fines of any type owed to another Milwaukee County Federated Library System library.
  2. Charges for lost books or replacement books from Shorewood Public Library.

Pay it Forward

We won't take money for any Shorewood Library overdue fines between August 31 and September 4, 2015. However, if you still want to "pay" us you can drop your fine amount - or any amount you wish - in the Pay it Forward jar. We will use this money to help people who owe fines to other libraries that are prohibiting them from using the library. We can't waive those fines, but we can pay for them out of the Pay it Forward jar!
