How to Return Items
You can return most Library materials to either of two locations:
All items except DVD2GO rentals
Circulation Desk (when the Library is open)
Drive-up book drops behind the building (any time)
Some items are marked with special return instructions such as "Please do not return this book in book drop." These items should be returned only to the Library Circulation Desk.

Replacing a lost library card
Suspension of Borrowing Privileges
Borrowing privileges are suspended for individuals whose fines exceed $10 and for families whose fines exceed $20. Borrowing privileges are reinstated once fines are paid. Family members over 18 years of age are responsible for their own fines.
Rental Book Fees
Rentals are our newest, most-wanted items. To help as many people enjoy these items as soon as possible, Rentals cannot be placed on hold or renewed.
We no longer charge $1 for our Rentals (good news!), but they are still due in 1 week and incur an overdue fine of $0.25 per day.
Interlibrary Loan Fees
ILLs are materials borrowed from other libraries in our consortium and across the U.S.
If fees or special handling costs are charged by the lending library, these are passed along to the patron.
Paying Your Fines and Fees
The circulation desks accept cash for the payment of overdue fines and rental book checkout. It is also possible to pay overdue fines online in your library account using a credit card.
