Teen Summer Reading

Fine Forgiveness

We hear it in the library all the time, "I can't use my library card because it has too many fines on it." Well, we WANT you to be able to use the library. So here's what we're doing about it...

The first time you register for Teen Summer Reading, we will remove all Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh late fees from your library card account.

After the first year, we will waive up to $10.00 from your account. Be sure to use your card responsibly!

The following fees are not eligible for TSR Fine Forgiveness:

  • Late fees from non-CLP locations (Sewickly Public Library, Northland Public Library, Wilkinsburg Public Library, etc.)
  • Fees for lost, damaged or billed items.
  • Other fees not relating to overdue materials, including but not limited to credit reporting and printing fees.

It may take several days to remove fees from your account. To check the status of your account, visit My Account
