Fines and Fees Policies

Fines for most overdue items from the Adult collection are twenty cents per item per open day. The maximum fine is $5 per item for books and other materials.

For Video cassettes and DVDs, the fine is $1 per title per open day.
The maximum fine is $10 per video.

Fines for items from the Children's collection are ten cents per item per open day.
The maximum fine is $3 per item.

 

Lost or Damaged items are charged the library's replacement cost PLUS a $5.00 non-refundable service charge. Items may not be replaced with a similar purchased item without express consent from the book selector and the $5.00 service charge would still apply.

 

Library accounts are considered in "good standing" when any combination of fines, fees, and/or lost materials is less than $10.00.

Accounts are blocked from library privileges when any combination of fines, fees, and/or lost materials exceed $10.00; further, when a library account exceeds $25.00 in any combination of fines, fees, and/or lost materials a final notice of Unresolved Charges is sent to the card holder.  If no action is taken to resolve the account, the account is automatically referred to the library collection agency, Unique National Collections, to assist in the recovery of materials and resolution of fines & fees owed.
