Lost & Damaged Items

Borrowers are responsible for the replacement costs for lost or damaged items.

Replacement Costs

Replacement costs include the price of the item (at the time of library acquisition) and a nonrefundable $5 processing fee. If damaged material is returned in the book drop, a letter will be sent informing the patron of the amount owed for the damage.

At the discretion of the purchasing staff member, the library accepts replacement copies for lost items. Borrower must still pay processing fees. The replacement copy must be an exact match of the original (i.e., author, titles, year, ISBN, format, etc.) and in new or like new condition. The library reserves the right to refuse any replacement copy.

No Refunds

The library does not issue refunds for lost and paid items that are later found or replacement copies.
