LOST ITEMS

Items which are not returned after 60 days past due are considered lost.

Items which are checked-out and not returned within 60 days of the date due are considered lost and a bill is automatically recorded in the patron’s account.  Lost items are assessed at their current, full retail replacement costs. If the lost item is returned to the library within six (6) months then a refund of the replacement cost will be made upon presentation of a receipt. The Library does not accept replacement materials in lieu of lost items.
