Using Your Card

Boise Public Library is Fine Free! 

We no longer charge late fines for Boise Public Library materials that are overdue. Fees still apply to lost or damaged items and will be billed accordingly. Additionally, fines from other libraries in the Lynx Consortium still apply. 

Check-outs, Due Dates & Overdue Items

Even if checked out through Boise Public Library, items from other libraries may have different limits, check-out periods, grace periods and so on. Be sure to check your account or receipt for actual due dates. Keep in mind:

  • Items that have been reserved by other customers cannot be renewed. 
  • Interlibrary loan fees and due dates are set by the lending library.
