If an item is lost, or if you believe an overdue item was returned, contact the library. The library will assist you in locating missing items. Unresolved fines and/or fees will be attached to your library account. Patron will be charged replacement cost of lost books or AV materials plus a processing fee.

The Library does not accept patron-purchased books to replace lost or damaged library books. Damaged items will be billed for cost-of-repair, or replacement, and processing fee. Failure to return library materials or to pay fees may result in loss of library privileges.
