As long as you have a library card, items may be borrowed for free from the library.
However, if you keep something past the item's due date, then you will be charged a late fee each day the item is overdue.
Vacation loan periods are listed on the Borrowing Periods page.
The library system accepts Visa, MasterCard and Discover for online fine payments. Please note:
• There is a convenience fee of $1.50 for online transactions. • You can visit the library and pay without being charged this additional fee. • Online or in person, all transactions are final – no refunds will be issued.
1. Select the link Pay Fines. You will need your library barcode and PIN (request your PIN if you have forgotten it). 2. Enter your library barcode and PIN. 3. Select the Pay Fines/Fees tab. 4. Select the Fine/Fee(s) you wish to pay. 5. Enter your credit card information and select Finish. 6. Logout.
What happens if I don't return overdue items...
When you renew a video or DVD, the computer system will give you 1 more week from the date you renew it. (Note: The system does not give you 1 more week from the videorecording's due date.)
The longer you wait to renew an item, the more time you may have to use it. (However, you won't be able to renew something if another person has requested it.)
Online catalog renewal help...
If the item could not be renewed, you will get a red error message saying “One or more of your items did not renew. Please scroll down for details.” In the line of the item that didn’t renew, there will be a message telling you why the item couldn’t be renewed.
Renewal help in the catalog is available.
If need more help, contact your library.
Contact your library as soon as possible to report the problem.
Fees range from $1 to the item's full replacement cost.
(If your item was overdue, this will stop any additional late fees from being charged to your card.)
If the library is closed now, you can use the Report Lost Item form.
After you have reported the item as returned, if the library doesn't find it on the shelf, or find out that it is checked out to someone else, you will be given a 2 month grace period to try and find it.
During that time, both you and library staff will look for the missing item.
If it's not found after 2 months, you will be billed for the item’s replacement cost, plus any late fees before it was reported missing.
If the item is found, late fees will be charged up to the time the item was returned.
If your library is closed now, you can use the Report Damaged Items form.
Your library will probably need to look at the item to determine what charges, if any, you will need to pay.
