Courtesy notices:

Patrons will be sent two overdue notices. If the item(s) are not returned within two weeks of the second notice, the patron will be billed for the item(s). The minimum replacement cost of any book is $50.00. The minimum replacement cost for any audiovisual material is $50.00. If the item you checked out is part of a set, you are responsible for replacing the entire set. Once any item you have checked out is overdue for six months, you are responsible for the replacement cost of the item, whether returned or not. There is no overdue fine for items returned within six months of the due date. However, the library reserves the right to inspect overdue items for damage. Damaged items will not be accepted and the patron is responsible for the replacement cost of the item.

Inter library Loan:

Any items requested through Inter library loan must be turned in by the due date specified by the lending library. You can request a renewal, but the lending library may or may not grant you an extension. Fines for Inter library loan books are $1.00/day with no grace period or exceptions.
