What about other libraries’ materials?

All materials returned through the Jones Library System will be checked in without fines, even if they belong to another library. Overdue fines stay at the library where the patron is paying them, so the owning library loses that revenue anyway. We have made this policy decision based on what we feel is best for our patrons.
