Checkout/Return Policies

A library card is required to check out all materials.

Library card holders must be physically present to check out materials. Borrowers may not check out items on another persons’ library card.

Protect Your Card

Protect your library card like you would a credit card.

You are responsible for all materials checked out on your card.  If your card is stolen, report it immediately.

Keep your information current.  Let us know when your address, phone number or email address change so you will receive notifications on time.

Lost or Damaged Items

If an item is lost or damaged (assessed by the library as being unsuitable for the collection), the patron will be charged the replacement cost of the item, plus a $5.o0 processing fee.

Any accrued overdue fines on lost or damaged items will be waived once the patron pays in full the replacement fees.

Placing Items on Reserve

Library patrons may request to place items on reserve that are currently unavailable.

Items can also be placed on reserve through the library website. (See how here)

Patrons will be notified by an email, phone call or text when the reserved item becomes available.

The item will be held on reserve for 1 week at the front desk, after which the item will either be returned to the shelf or placed on reserve for the next patron on the waiting list.
