Beginning in July checking out DVDs at the Sierra Madre Public Library will cost $1 a week. The Library will charge for a seven-day DVD rental of new releases, feature films and entertainment media, but educational DVDs will still be loaned out for free. Overdue fines for all DVDs will increase from $1 a day to $2 a day.
The Sierra Madre City Council made the change as part of a new fee schedule aimed at balancing the city budget. Prior to July 1, 2012, all DVDs had been free.
The Sierra Madre Public Library is located at 440 West Sierra Madre Boulevard in Sierra Madre. For more information please call (626) 355-7186.
