LOST OR DAMAGED MATERIALS

Patrons are responsible for all materials checked out under their name, and are liable for damages to library materials.  The director will notify the patron of any replacement cost including fines.  If the patron has already paid the replacement cost and the item is later returned, the replacement cost will be refunded, less $5.00 processing fee.  For items costing less than $5.00, no money will be refunded. 

Items damaged beyond repair will be charged at replacement cost.

Patrons who continually lost or damage library materials may risk losing their library privileges.
