· Printed materials – 21 day renewal option
· Talking Books – 21 day renewal option
· Music CDs – 21 day renewal option
· DVDs – 7 day renewal option
All items including but not restricted to books, DVDs, audio cassettes and compact discs, whether purchased or donated, that are lost or destroyed by patrons must be replaced by the patron at the cost listed in the Library’s database plus a $5 processing fee for each item. Patrons who refuse to pay such fees and/or return the item without paying fees will automatically lose borrowing privileges until such fees are paid.
If the fee is paid, and the item is returned within 15 days, the patron will then receive a refund of that fee via U.S. Mail. Library personnel must check DVDs, audiocassettes, compact discs, puzzles, etc., for damage before Library privileges are restored.
Since DVDs, audiocassettes and compact discs are checked on a regular basis at Checkout to assure their usable condition, a patron cannot use the words “it was like this when I checked it out”, as his/her excuse for not paying for the replacement.
