Fines and Payment Copy

The Library distributes overdue notices by email and text message.  Failure to receive an overdue notice does not exempt a library card holder from responsibility for overdue fines. If fines exceed $25.00, borrowing privileges will be suspended until fines are reduced below the $25.00 limit.

Loan Periods and Automatic Renewals

Eligible items like books, CDs, and DVDs will automatically renew up to three times. The new date is calculated from the previous due date, not from the date of renewal. Borrowers who have an email address will continue to receive a courtesy notice three days before the item due date. The notice will list items that have been automatically renewed and the new due date. The notice will alert the patron to items that are ineligible for renewal and the original due date. It is important to note that items that cannot be renewed will still accrue fines if they are late. Please note: this service does not apply to digital materials (i.e. Overdrive/Libby), Express and Rental items, Museum passes, Library of Things, and Other “non-traditional” items.


When all available copies of a title are checked out, a hold can be placed on that particular item. Holds can be placed online, in person, or by phone with a valid library card.  You will be contacted by email, text message, or phone when your hold is available. Holds are kept for seven days and then released if not picked up.
