Fees for Lost and Damaged Materials

As of November 1, 2020, the Library District no longer charges daily fines for overdue or late returns on Library items. Replacement and processing fees for lost or damaged items still apply.

Fees can be paid via check at a Customer Service Desk or pay online via My Account with a credit card or debit card. The District does not accept cash payments.

Lost materials item cost + a $10.00 processing fee
Damaged materials up to item cost + a $10.00 processing fee

Once fees reach $50.00 your library card is blocked from use. Excessively late accounts may be turned over to a collection agency. The Library District does not accept replacements for lost or damaged items.


If you pay for a lost item and then find it and return it to a Library Service Desk within 60 days, the Library will refund you the full amount you paid for the item. Refunds will be issued by check within two weeks from the date of the original. The Library District does not offer cash refunds.

Refunds for returned lost items that were paid with cash, check, or credit card can be done at any District library Customer Service Desk during open hours.

The Library does not offer refunds for processing fees or copies.
