Lost Materials

If a borrower cannot locate an item at the time it is due to be returned, the borrower should report it as lost thereby stopping the further accumulation of fines. The library’s original cost of the item to be replaced will be charged to the patron. Upon payment for a lost or irreparable item, a receipt will be issued. If within six weeks of the date of payment, the item is returned in good condition, the price paid for the item shall be refunded. Condition of the item shall be determined by the director. The processing fee is non-refundable.

A patron’s borrowing privileges will be suspended until fines, fees and replacement costs are paid. A patron may replace a lost or damaged item with a like item at the director’s discretion.

You must pay late fees before you can renew an item.

Irreparable Materials

Borrowers who return library materials that cannot be easily repaired or cleaned will be charged the library’s original cost of the item to be replaced plus a $2.00 processing fee. The patron may keep the damaged item after payment has been made. Materials damaged beyond repair will normally be assessed at the same rate as lost items.
