Circulation Policy

We do not charge overdue item fines.

If a book is long overdue or damaged, a standard processing fee of $25.00 plus a minimum replacement fee will be applied to your account. The Library reserves the right to adjust this replacement fee upward if it does not cover the cost of the replacement. In some libraries you may replace the lost item with a new book of the same edition, and only the $25 processing fee will be charged. Please consult with a circulation supervisor concerning lost items.

The Circulation Department closes 15 minutes before the Library closes.
