Customers are responsible for all materials borrowed on their library cards. Overdue fees continue to accrue until the material is returned. Overdue fees may be paid at the time of return or at a later date. When the borrower’s account exceeds $10, borrowing privileges will be suspended until sufficient fees are paid to reduce the balance owed to less than $10. The library’s primary interest is in getting the material back so it can be available for other customers.
Overdue notices may be sent by E-mail, or telephone. E-mail and telephone messages will be generated the first day the item becomes overdue. Notices are courtesies only. Failure to receive an overdue notice does not exempt the borrower from overdue fees.
Materials containing multiple items will not be checked in until all items have been returned. Overdue fees will be charged if all items have not been returned by the due date.
The cost of materials that are lost or damaged will be charged to the borrower’s account.
If materials are not returned or fees are not paid, the borrower’s account may be referred to a collection agency and a non-refundable fee of $10 will be added to the borrower’s account.
