Overdue reminder notices are sent on late materials; however it is your responsibility to return your materials on time. Lost items must be paid for before your card will be accepted again for checkout. A minimum fine of $5.00 or the cost of the item if over $5.00, plus overdue fines if applicable, will be charged for each lost item. Administrative fees may also apply.
