Overdue Policy

The library is a community  resource. Please return materials  by the due date so that others may use them.

The library sends reminder notices by e-mail, telephone, or mail. When items are approximately 28 days past due a bill is sent for the price of the item plus an overdue fine of $3.50. The cost  of the material is waived if the item is returned, however, the overdue fine remains.

If material is not returned within 30 days of the billing date, the patron's account will be sent to collection, and an additional  $20 charge is added.

Daily Late Fines

All Fiction DVDs including TV Series have a 50 cent per day late fine.

Accumulating $25 or more in fines, access to library services will be restricted.
