Overdue fines do not apply to most items!
We are pleased to say that less than 2% of our items become overdue. Thank you!
Other fines and fees exist at the library to help ensure that everyone gets the items they want in a timely fashion.
We are predominantly fine-free! Most items do not accrue daily overdue fines and will only generate a fine if lost (see Lost Item Fee below).
Only the following items will still accrue overdue fines to ensure their timely return:
Daily Fine: $1.00 (max $10.00)
If overdue fines are preventing you from using the library, please let us know so we can help.
Lost Item (aka Replacement Cost) Fee:
A lost item is any item that has been overdue for more than 14 days or is reported lost by the borrower. The fee is the original retail price at the time of purchase.
Lost items may not be replaced by the patron in lieu of paying the fee. However, if the item is later found, we are happy to reimburse the lost item fee minus any overdue charges.
A lost item on your record will prevent you from checking out additional physical items (but not digital ones!) until the fee is paid or the item is returned.
