Library Services - Overdue or Lost Items
Borrowers will receive overdue notices via email, if they have added an email address to their user account.
Finding Out What You Have Overdue or Lost
Titles of overdue or lost items are given on mailed and emailed notices. You may also find out the titles of your overdue or lost items by accessing your library account online. Overdue items are listed under "Items Checked Out" and lost items are listed with the other fees under "Fines" in the My Account area.
Library materials are checked out for three weeks. The fine rate for all patrons, including children, is $.50 per item per day. Fines are assessed on a daily basis if the item has not been returned or renewed by 11:59 pm on the due date.
Borrowers with excessive fines will be blocked from borrowing items. In addition, the Library System may turn delinquent adult accounts over to a service agency for collection.
Fines for Children
The fine rate for children is $.50 per item per day. The maximum overdue fine is $10.00 per item. Fines are assessed on a daily basis if the item has not been returned or renewed by 11:59 pm on the due date. Like adult borrowers, children with excessive fines will be blocked from borrowing items.
All borrowers, adults and children, must pay for lost items. When materials are lost, the borrower pays the library's replacement cost, which includes the average price for the type of item and a processing fee.
