4. Fines & payments

Fines are incurred when materials are returned past date due.
Fines continue to be assessed daily up to the maximum fine indicated for the material.
When fines reach $10, your library card is inactivated.

If items are not returned within 28 days of due date, the item is considered lost.
If items are returned in unusable condition, the item is considered damaged.
Lost and damaged items incur a replacement cost plus a non-refundable processing fee of $3 except for PBK paperbacks, for which fee is $.50.
If replacement cost is paid for a lost item and the item is returned within 60 days with receipt, the replacement cost will be reimbursed.
