Stafford Library is pleased to announce we are mostly fine-free!


As of January 1, 2022, the Stafford Library has gone fine-free on most of our items.

All materials in our children and teen departments are now fine-free! Late fines will only be charged on high-demand items in our adult department, which include: new books, new DVDs (movies and series), hotspots, and museum/local attraction passes. In addition, fines may still accrue on items borrowed from other libraries.

Of course, you are still responsible for the items you borrow and pay to replace lost or damaged items, but now you don't need to pay a fee if you return them a couple of days late.

Free Tax Help for Qualifying Residents

The Stafford Library is once again hosting the VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) program. VITA offers free tax return preparation service to those with a household income of up to $58,000.

Hours are:
Thursdays (beginning 1/27) 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Every other Saturday (beginning 1/29) 10 am - 1 pm

Masks must be worn during your appointment. Thank you.
