|Digital Collections (eBooks, eAudiobooks)||n/a||n/a|
|All other materials||$0.10||$5.00|
- Cards with $5.00 or more in fines and fees will be restricted from borrowing until the balance is paid down below $5.00
- Patrons will be charged the retail cost of lost or damaged materials, plus a $5.00 processing fee. Patrons who choose to provide the Library with a new, identical item to replace the lost or damaged material will only be charged the $5.00 processing fee. Refunds can be issue for materials that are found within twelve months of payment, less the overdue fine and processing fee.
- Accounts not settled within 60 days may be turned over to a collection agency, and a $10 collection agency fee will be assessed.
