Overdue Fines

Overdue fines for an item acquired through interlibrary loan are $1.00 per day up to a maximum of $10.00 per item. Additional fees may be assessed by the lending library for items returned late or in poor condition.

The library charges for materials that are lost or are intentionally damaged. The cost for a lost or damaged item will be the replacement cost of that item plus a processing fee.

When the amount of fines owed on a library card exceeds $10.00, the card is blocked until the fines are paid.
