Pay for Lost or Damaged Items?

Overdue Items

We do not charge late fees for overdue items. When an item is overdue by 14 days, the patron's account will be suspended from borrowing additional materials until the overdue item is returned. No more new checkouts until the overdue item is returned.

Patrons will receive overdue notices at 7, 14 and 28 days overdue. When an item is more than 45 days overdue, we will turn over communication to a third party agency.
