Purchase/Replace Item - Charges

The purchase price of the library item plus a $5 processing fee will be levied for lost or completely damaged items. The current bindery charge will be made for the dust jacket. Donations of items cannot be accepted in lieu of a payment for lost or damaged items, unless it is a new copy of the same title. In order to receive a refund, the original receipt must be presented. Refunds under $15 will be available the next day. A check will be issued on the next processing date for refunds over $15. 

Fine Payments

The purpose of fines is to keep materials in circulation. Therefore, a payment for overdue or lost items is required before other items may be checked out. Partial payment is permissible for fines over $25. Arrangements for payment plans must be set up with the Library Services Administrator.
