- Fine and Overdue Notices:
Fines are effective from the first
day the item is due. There is a charge of ten cents per book per
day. There is a charge of fifty cents per video or audio
material per day. If fines are not paid when items are returned, the
charges will be on your record. When fines accumulated to $5.00
or more, you must reduce the fines below $5.00 or library
privileges will be suspended.
If library materials are not
returned, you will be billed the price of the materials plus a $2.00
processing fee. In addition, your record will be blocked and you will
no longer have borrowing privileges.
If an item that you would like is
not available because it is checked out, we will put a hold on it for
you. You may request the item in person or by telephone.
If we do not have a particular book
or any books on a subject in our collection that you need, we may be
able to get it on Interlibrary Loan (ILL). It takes from one to four
weeks to fill the ILL request. A non-refundable processing fee of
at least $2.00 per item is due upon request.
Items may be renewed for another
check-out period if no holds are on the item. Renewing an overdue book
does not erase fines. Renewals may be done by telephone or in person.
Call 334-365-3396 to renew books.
