Fees


You are responsible for everything checked out on your card, no matter who was using it.

Overdue & missing item fees

  • Overdue fees are 25 cents per day. 
  • If you borrow items from other libraries  please be aware that other libraries’ fees may differ from ours.
  • Overdue fees start the first day after the due date and are charged every day, except days we are closed. Long overdue accounts may be referred to a collection agency.

Rentals: The “Get it now” option

Our bestsellers and DVDs include some with green stickers that say Rental. Rentals let you pay a little to get an item right away.

  • Rental DVDs and Blu-rays cost $2 per week.
  • Rental books, audiobooks, and video games cost $1 per week.
  • Rental items can be renewed.
  • Rentals cannot be reserved by others, so you always have the option to keep them longer, if you wish.

The dollars we collect for rentals help us buy more books and DVDs. We also  offer  free copies so if you don't mind waiting, you can always request one of our free copies.

Lost or damaged books & other items

Accidents do happen.   If an item you have checked out is lost or damaged, you will be charged for the  item.

Pay online

Fees can be paid online, in your library account. Log in and click on “Fees.” Check the box beside each fee you wish to pay and click “Pay Fees Now” under your fee list.
Note: Minimum payment $1.
