Suspension of Privileges
Borrowing privileges may be temporarily suspended in the event of overdue items, fines in excess of $5.00, or lost items. Borrowing privileges resume as soon as the account is cleared.
Lost items should be reported immediately to the library. Unless reported, fines will continue to accumulate as though overdue.
Borrowers are expected to pay for lost or damaged materials ($35 replacement charge plus a $10.00 service charge per item). If a lost item is then found and returned promptly, all but the service charge will be waived.
