General Billing Information

For regular circulating items

  • A courtesy reminder is emailed 3 days before the due date.
  • A courtesy overdue notice is e-mailed three, 12, and 24 days after the item is overdue.
  • A lost item bill is emailed 30 days after the due date.
  • All borrowers are expected to return or renew items by the due date.
  • All borrowers are subject to fees for material not returned.
  • All borrowers are responsible for all of the items checked out on their library account.

Claims Returned Information

If you believe you returned materials but they are still on your library account, you can request that the Library search for those items.

  • The library provides the Claims Returned process as a courtesy to library users. 
  • Borrowers are responsible for all materials checked out to them at all times.
  • Initiating the Claims Returned process does not relieve you of the responsibility for items checked out to you.
  • We will thoroughly search the library three times.
  • If the item is not found you are responsible for paying the fees. 

This process usually takes about two weeks.  If the item is found, it will be checked in and no longer appear on your library account. If the item is not found, it will remain checked out to your account. Please check your account or contact the library to find the status of your Claims Returned item.
