Circulation Policy & Fines & Fees

Most library materials may be checked out for three weeks at a time. The exception is rental feature films on DVD and VHS. These can be checked out for 7 days at a cost of $2.00. Most materials can be renewed one time in person, online, or over the phone. 

In the spirit of fairness and equal access, library materials can be renewed one time only. After that, items must be returned to the library for 48 hours before they can be checked out again by the previous borrower or by that borrower’s family members.

Library Fines and Fees are as follows:

  • $.25 per day for most overdue materials.
  • $2.00/7 days for feature films on DVD and Video. (These are marked with Red, Lime, or Orange dots.)
  • $5.00 per request for interlibrary loan items.
  • $3.00 for library card replacement.
  • $1.00 per page for color photocopies or computer prints; $.15 per page for black and white photocopies or computer prints.
  • A non-refundable processing fee of $15.00 per item is included in the replacement cost of items. Patrons may pay the replacement cost or replace the item with an acceptable copy and pay only the processing fee.


Borrowing and renewal privileges will be blocked when accumulated fines/fees reach a $4.99 threshold.
