Over Due Materials
Over due fines are .10 cents a day with a maximum amount of $5.00 per item. No charges accrue on days that the library is closed. Patrons with fines of $5.00 or more will have their privileges suspended.
Patrons will be mailed a total of three noticed when material is overdue. The third notice will include billing for the replacement cost of the material plus overdue fines. The patron's library privileges will be suspended until the overdue material is returned, or paid for in full. If not paid in full, these patrons will be deleted from the system after three months. In order to be reinstated, all charges must be paid in addition of a $5.00 reinstatement fee.
Our staff checks all materials for damages when they are checked back in. Please let us know when accidents happen. We ask that you do not attempt to repair torn pages, etc. as we have special materials used for mending. Some items are damaged enough to be notified by mail. You will be charged for damage or replacement costs, if warranted, the occurred while the item was checked out to you. Patrons have thirty days from the date of notification to come in and view the damaged item(s). After that time the item(s) will be cleaned, repaired or replaced.
Persons 18 years or older applying for a library card are required to show a recent photo ID and proof of current mailing address. We will also ask for your full name, mailing address, phone number, and email address.

Examples of acceptable proof of address:
Persons under the age of 18 years old who wish to apply for a library card will need to have a parent or legal guardian come in and apply with them as a cosigner. The cosigner must either have a library card in good standing OR show a current ID and proof of address. We will require the student's full name, mailing address, phone number, email address, and date of birth.
The cosigner is ultimately responsible for any and all charges accrued on the student's card. Both the student's card and cosigner's library privileges will be revoked if either account falls into arrears.

You may place a reserve or hold on any time currently checked out. We will notify you by your preferred contact method once your material is available. We hold items for one week before it is put back out for the general public.
Inter-Library loans are a free service we off to patrons in the event we do not have something you are looking for. Ask a library about getting your item from an other library. ILLs are available to those patrons whose account is not on new-patron status and if all fees are paid.
There is a $5.00 charge on per item for any ILLs not picked up.
