The library is a community resource in which members share a collection of materials. Members have an obligation to return materials in a timely manner so that others may use them. Materials are due on the date stamped.

As a courtesy, the library reminds patrons of overdue material by telephone, email, or mail at 1 week and again at 2 weeks.  If items are not returned in a timely manner, a bill is sent for the replacement cost of the item plus an overdue fine of $3.50. The cost of the material is waived when the item is returned, however, the overdue fine remains.

The cost of the materials is waived when the items are returned; however, the processing fine remains.

To cover the cost of notifying patrons of late or lost material, the library charges a $3.50 overdue fine on each item billed to the patron's account.
