Ebook Reader Circulation Policy

Ebook readers may be borrowed by resident adult cardholders 18 years of age or older. Patron must have a history of being in good standing for at least 90 days (no unpaid fines or fees, overdues, etc.) A valid photo ID is required for checkout, and the patron must sign the ebook reader lending policy agreement. The signed agreement and a copy of their photo ID will be filed by the library, and a note will be placed on their card signifying that they signed the agreement.

The patron assumes full responsibility for the cost of repair or replacement in the event that the ebook reader or its accessories are lost, stolen, or damaged. Replacement costs will be based on the library’s reasonable assessment of the current cost for repair or replacement, and will not exceed $150, in addition to any accrued late fees. CCFLS will not accept a replacement device or replacement accessories in lieu of payment for a lost or damaged device or accessories. The replacement costs are as follows: Ereader: $129; Case: $20; Charging cable: $5.

Ebook readers must be returned at the library’s circulation desk to library staff, not to a book drop. Ebook readers must be returned to the library where they were checked out. All accessories (charging cable, case, instructions, etc) must be returned with the ereader.

Ebook readers are not to be used for purchasing digital content not currently made available from CCFLS. Additionally, ebooks may not be transferred from ebook readers to a computer or other device.
Only one device may be checked out per patron at a time; patrons may place holds (reserves) on the device.
Ebook readers will circulate for 2 weeks with no renewals

Fines will be $1 per day, with a maximum of $25, with no grace period. There will be a charge of $5 for ereaders not returned according to the circulation policy (eg, returned via book drop or to another library).

CCFLS is not responsible for any data or content uploaded or downloaded to the device by patrons. All data will be removed from the device upon its return to the library.

Failure to comply with ereader circulation policy and procedures may result in loss of privileges and may lead to prosecution.
