Patrons are responsible for replacement of lost or severely damaged library materials. The current replacement charge for lost books is set at $110.00 per item. The replacement cost of items borrowed from fellow institutions is set at the discretion of the lending library.
Items that are damaged but not destroyed while in a patron’s possession will result in fines consistent with the degree of damage.
In some cases, a patron may be permitted to offer a new copy of a book to replace one that was lost or destroyed while in their possession. Patrons should check with the circulation department to find out if this may be an option for their circumstances.
Borrower’s privileges are suspended when total fines reach $25.00.
