The Library uses a collection agency to collect overdue fines and replacement fees for lost items as indicated on the Legal Contract signed at time of obtaining a Library card. Notice is automatically sent to the collection agency via the computer system if the patron owes more than $20.00 over a 45-day period.
The Library does send out courtesy reminder notices for lost or overdue items, but the Library is not responsible for lost or misdirected mail. It is up to the patron to keep their account information (address and phone number) up to date.
Note: Lost or misdirected notices do not relieve the Library cardholder of financial responsibility of fees and unreturned materials.
