We hope you will use your library card often. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
LIBRARY CARD: Bring your card with you when you want to check out materials. It makes it easier for us to help you. If you have forgotten your card, we can check items out to you if you have a valid ID.
LOAN PERIODS: All materials, except videos, may be checked out for two weeks at a time. (See video policy)
GRACE PERIOD: There is a five business day grace period for all materials except videos, toys and Interlibrary Loan items.
RENEWALS: Library materials, except videos and toys, may be renewed twice. No item on reserve may be renewed. Renewals can be made either in person at the library or over the phone.
RESERVES: Materials owned by the Library, except videos and toys, may be reserved. We will mail you a card to notify you when the material is available. The cost for reserves is 50 cents.
BOOK RETURN: All materials, except videos & DVDs, may be returned to the book drop in front of the Library. There is a $1 charge for each video returned in the book drop, as temperature changes can damage the video tape. We encourage you to return materials inside when the Library is open, to help reduce wear and tear.
Loan Period: Four days. No renewals.
Fines: $1 per calendar day per video or DVD.
There is a $1 charge per video or DVD left in the drop box.
Loan Period: Two weeks. No renewals.
Fines: 20 cents per calendar day per toy.
REPLACEMENT CARDS: If your card has been lost or stolen, you may purchase a replacement. All fines must be paid, and all materials returned before a new card will be issued. Cost for a new card is $3 for an adult card, $1 for a children’s card.
LIABILITY: The Library is not liable for equipment damage that may occur while using Library-owned cassettes, CD’s, videos or diskettes.
PUBLIC PERFORMANCE RIGHTS: Video cassettes marked “Public Performance Rights” may be used in public group showings where no admission is charged. All other videos are restricted to private home viewing.
REPLACEMENT CHARGES: The fees for lost, damaged or missing Library materials are: bag or cassette case, $2; material barcode, $3; pamphlet, 50 cents. The fee for a book, CD, cassette, video, toy or periodical is the replacement cost of the item.
Changes in fines will take effect September 1, 2008.
