Customers will be billed for the cost of a replacement for items six weeks overdue. Anyone who has items more than 10 weeks overdue and a balance of $25 or more in fines will be referred to a Collection Agency. A $10 collection agency service fee will be added to the fine record. The complete balance must be resolved before borrowing privileges are reinstated.
Parents or guardians are responsible for fines or fees charged to their minor children. No fines are charged on children’s materials. Cardholders over the age of 60 will not be charged overdue fines but they are responsible for fees on lost or damaged items.
Customers may have no more than 75 items checked out at a time.
Teachers and parents who home school their children may check out children’s and teen print materials (books and magazines) for 6 weeks. Ask at the circulation desk upon checkout.
