Overdue Fines

Daily overdue fines are charged for each item that is not returned or renewed by its due date. If fines, estimated fines and/or other fees on your card exceed $10.00, your borrowing privileges (including the ability to renew items and place holds) and computer privileges will be blocked until the balance on your account is less than $10.00.

The Library distributes overdue notices by email as a courtesy. Failure to receive an overdue notice does not exempt a library card holder from responsibility for overdue fines.

 Long Overdue Materials

Accounts with items overdue 45 days will be billed to the customer with a $5.00 processing fee per item. If the materials are not returned or paid for within ten days of billing, the account will be sent to a library collection agency Site. A non-negotiable $10 processing fee will also be added to the account to cover the cost of the materials collection service.

 Damaged Materials

You may also be charged replacement costs if you lose or damage library material. Customers with lost or damaged items will be charged the library's cost to replace them through our authorized suppliers. The library does not accept replacement items in lieu of payment nor negotiate the price to replace material. A damaged item billed to an account will be kept for the customer to view or have once it has been paid for. However, due to space limitations, the Library typically cannot store these items longer than a week. A customer is still responsible for the bill even if the item has been discarded.

 Missing Materials

Customers returning items with missing pieces will be notified by the library. These items will remain checked out on the customer's account until all pieces are returned. If the items become overdue, fines will result. If the missing materials are not returned within seven days of notification, the library will treat the item as a damaged material as stated above.

 10% Payment Plan

The library does supply its customers the option of a payment plan. Customers who pay ten percent of their account balance each visit may borrow up to two items at a time and use the Library's public computers that day. Failure to maintain monthly payment activity may result in referral to a library collection agency Site.
