Overdue Items & Fines
You are responsible for all items borrowed on your card and any juvenile cards on your family account. Overdue fines are system generated but not collected - a “guilty jar” is available at the staff desk for those wishing to make a donation.
When an item is 6 weeks overdue, your account will show charges for replacement costs. Borrower cards are temporarily suspended if fines are $25 or over.
