Daily late fines still apply when renewing late fiction DVDs.

Circulating material currently checked out or on shelf at another location may be reserved.

Notification will be sent by email, telephone or mail, and items will be held for 5 days. 30 items may be reserved at any one time.

At this time Regional Library Card members can place a total of 3 holds.

Daily Late Fines


All Fiction DVDs including TV Series have a 50ยข per day late fine.

Overdue Policy


The library is a community resource. Please return materials by the due date so that others may use them.

The library sends reminder notices by email, telephone, or mail. When items are approximately 28 days past due a bill is sent for the price of each item plus a $3.50 per item overdue fine.

The cost of the material is waived if the item is returned, however, the overdue fine remains.

Accounts 30 days past the billing date that owe $25 or more in lost material and/or fines are submitted to Unique Collection Agency and charged an additional $20 collection fine.

Accumulating $25 or more in fines, access to library services will be restricted.
