Notices and Email Notification

As a courtesy, the library sends overdue and hold pick-up notices via email. To register or change your current email address, please visit your nearest library branch, or log into your account and select My Information.  For those patrons without email, only billing notices will be sent via postal mail.  A bill includes the cost of the lost items, processing and replacement charges and possible collection agency service fees.

Accounts owing a minimum balance of $40 will be referred to a collection agency. A nonrefundable collection fee of $10 will be assessed to your account when it is referred to a collection agency.  Status of items on hold can be obtained by calling the library.

You will be assessed replacement fees for damaged, unreturned, or lost items according to the Fines and Fees Schedule, which is subject to change.

  • Fines and fees do not apply to eMedia, as titles automatically expire on their due dates.

  • Fines over $2 or failure to return items will result in suspension of borrowing privileges.

  • When an uncatalogued item such as a paperback, board book or magazine is lost, you may elect to pay the cost of the item or provide an equivalent item to replace the one that was lost. The replacement will be accepted as long as it is in excellent condition.
