How much are overdue fines for materials checked out at Belleville? Fines for DVDs and VHS tapes are $1 per day. All other items are 5 cents per day. Fines are based on material type, not on the type of card used for checking out. There is no grace period. Fines start assessing the day after an item is due. Money collected for fines is used to offset the budget and to buy new materials for the Belleville Public Library.
