Late Notice Fee
There will be a $.50 cent fee per mailed late notice. This fee helps the library off-set the cost of the materials, postage and time involved in mailing out late notices.
How to avoid this fee:
Select either text or email notification options for "Items overdue." You will receive your first late notice by text or email, which will not include a fee. This video will walk you through changing your notification methods. If you'd rather be emailed, select your email address from the drop-down menu next to "Items overdue."
Make sure your items don't become overdue. Select either the text or email notification option for "3 day notice before items are due" so you'll know that the due date is coming up.
Renew your items online or give us a call to renew them.
Replacement cost - retail cost of item + $3.00 processing fee
You may also bring us a new or like new identical copy of the item and just pay the $3.00 processing fee.
There will be a $2.00 fee per interlibrary loan item. This fee helps the library off-set the cost of shipping the book back to the lending library. It will be collected when the item is picked up; please have the $2.00 with you at that time, in either cash or check form. After a request is made, there is a very narrow amount of time in which we can cancel the request; please be sure that you want us to get the item for you before you request it. If an interlibrary loan item is not picked up, the fee is still assessed.
