The Library does not charge fines for overdue items, but the Library does charge for the replacement of lost item(s). Bills are issued 10 days after the item was scheduled to be returned. The bill will be for the replacement cost plus a $25.00 service charge per item. Upon the return of materials the $25.00 service charge and the replacement charge are dropped and the patron’s record is cleared. When a patron notices a discrepancy regarding a returned item for which the patron has been billed, the staff will check the records and search the shelves for one month. If the item is not found, financial restitution remains the responsibility of the user. Library borrowing privileges will be revoked if the patron fails to comply with these borrowing guidelines and payment of replacement costs.
