Library Fees

Library fees for overdue items as well as lost or damaged items may differ among Libraries in Clackamas County (LINCC) libraries. Fees are based on the owning library's checkout policies.

Please contact us if your overdue fees are creating any barriers to accessing library materials. Speak with one of our team members during your visit, call our Circulation Desk at 503-657-8269 (menu option Number 3), or email Circulation Services. We're here to help!
