Policies and Guidelines

Fees

Any item not returned 30 days past the due date is considered lost and incurs lost and processing fees. Lost fees are assessed according to item type for materials that are lost, damaged, or unreturned and are charged to the library account. If the item is returned in good condition within 30 days of payment the replacement fee will be refunded, however the processing fee is non-refundable. Library privileges are suspended until all lost and processing fees are paid in full.

Food and Beverage

Certain food is only allowed in the lobby of the library, if consumed responsibly. Patrons are expected to clean up after themselves, discarding trash in appropriate containers and notifying staff immediately of any spills.

Food is limited to meal replacements, snack or wrapped items which are consumed individually. No fast food or open plates of food are allowed. The delivery of food to the library for library users is prohibited.

Patrons with food having a strong odor may be asked to consume it outside the library. Beverages in lidded containers are allowed everywhere in the library.

Interlibrary Loan

We will attempt to borrow material from other libraries when we do not own a particular title. The library provides this service to our students and employees only. Others are asked to use their local public library to get materials through Interlibrary Loan. Please allow time for processing and shipping of requests.

Library Closing

The Circulation Desk closes 10 minutes before the rest of the library. All transactions must be completed by this time.
