Overdue notification is a courtesy. The library is not responsible if notification is not received.

Incurring charges in excess of $50 for lost or damaged materials may be referred to a recovery agency.

Lost and damaged items are billed after 45 days overdue. At 60 days overdue, if charges are $50+, the account will be referred to a recovery agency and a $10 fee will be added, for each referral. Items that are 120+ days overdue will not be eligible for return or refund.

What is a Vacation loan?

If you will be going out of town for an extended amount of time, ask a customer service staff member for a vacation loan. The normal loan period for any item may be doubled except for those with holds or on Interlibrary loan.
