We do not charge for items being returned late. When an item is 21 days overdue, the item is considered lost and the replacement cost will be charged to the patron’s account. Patrons with unpaid balances of $10.00 on their accounts will be blocked from checking out until the account is under $10.00. Patrons with more than 5 overdue items will be blocked from checking out materials. Any parent, legal guardian or child’s library account that has more than $50 in fines will block all family members’ accounts from use until each account is below $50 in fines. Patron accounts with unpaid balances over $50 of lost materials will be turned over to a collection agency and a $10 service fee will be added to the account balance.

Damaged or Lost Items:

If a library item is damaged or lost, the cost of the item plus a $3.00 processing fee will be added to your library account. The cost of the item can be acquired by contacting the Service Desk at (740) 852-9543.
