Fines & Fees
We provide free and equal access to materials under the Library Board of Trustees approved Fine Free policy (subject to change).
We do, however, ask that you return your items in a timely manner.
- Borrowers accept financial responsibility for lost, stolen or damaged items.
- Borrowers will be blocked from checking out physical materials if any "lost" or irreparably damaged items exist within their account(s). Once issues are resolved, regular borrowing privileges will typically be restored. Borrowers' access to e-materials, computers, and materials for use within the library will remain open.
