Items may not be checked out or renewed if you owe fines and/or fees over $10.00.
Overdue fines are $0.10 per day, to a maximum of $3.00 per item. Video Game overdue charges are $0.50 per day, to a maximum of $6.00 per item. High Demand videos overdue charges are $1.00 per day, to a maximum of $10.00. Patrons are responsible for all materials borrowed on their cards. Fines stop accumulating when an item is returned, and can be paid at that time or at a later date. The library's interest is in getting the item(s) back so that it is available for other users.
Notices are sent by E-mail, phone, or regular mail. E-mail and phone notices are generated the first day an item becomes overdue. Paper notices are sent seven days past the due date and 21 days past the due date. Notices are courtesies only. Failure to receive such a notice does not exempt the cardholder from any fines due.
If an item is damaged or lost, the replacement cost will be charged to your record.
If items are not returned or fines are not paid, your account may be referred to the Unique Management recovery agency. Should your account be reported, an additional, non-refundable fee of $10.00 will be added to your account.
