When items are checked out, you are given a printed slip that includes due date information. It is also possible to check due dates by:
- Visiting “My Account” in the Library’s catalog online
- Requesting an emailed receipt at check-out
Fines accrue daily starting from the date an item is due. Fines will continue to build until the item is returned or renewed, or until the maximum fine level is reached.
Overdue materials will be charged the following fines:
Children's picture books: 15 cents per day with a maximum of $3.
Magazines: 25 cents per day with a maximum of $3.
All other items: 25 cents per day with a maximum of $5.
Patrons with fines totaling more than $50 are unable to check out materials. Once the total fines are below $50, check-out privileges are restored.
Patrons can sign up for email or text notifications online or with a library staff member to receive a courtesy reminder two days prior to an item's due date.
Patrons are also notified five days after an item is due.
Lost and damaged items
You are responsible for all items checked out to you.
Library items should be returned in the condition in which they were checked out. Any physical damage that occurred during the current patron's possession of the item, pay the original cost of the item plus a $5 processing fee.
Stolen or lost Items
An item is assumed lost if it is more than 21 days overdue. The cost of the lost item is then charged to your account along with a $5 processing fee.
If an item is stolen, patrons may check with their insurance provider to determine if there is coverage includes the cost of the theft. Report theft to the police.
The library does not accept replacement items for lost or damaged items.
