Borrowing and Fees

Things to Know

  • Items not returned will be billed at the cost of replacement.
  • If a patron’s fees exceed $20.00, the patron will be unable to check-out items or access some library services.
  • Damaged materials or materials that are more than 60 days overdue may be referred to a materials collection agency.  A collection fee of $9.00 will be assessed, per account.
  • The library does not accept replacements for lost or damaged items.
