Fines and Fees

There are fines of 10¢ a day per item for all overdue materials except "Fast Read" books, "Fast View" DVDs,  Blu-ray movies and “Doorway to Dayton” museum passes, which are $1.00 a day per item.

If you owe $5.00 or more, you may not check out more items until your account is paid in full. 

If you lose an item, you will be charged the retail cost of the lost item, plus a $4 processing fee.  The replacement cost will be waived if you provide the library with a new, identical item to replace the lost one.  A $4 fee is still charged to cover the cost of processing the replacement item.   If you have paid for a lost item and the item is found and returned within twelve months of the date you paid, you can get a refund, minus the $4 processing fee and an overdue fine.  A refund check will be issued the next time checks are run.

Accounts not settled within 60 days may be turned over to a collection agency.  A $10 collection agency fee is added to these accounts.  

Replacing a lost library card costs $3.00.

There is a fee of 50¢ for each interlibrary loan request processed.
