WE HAVE REDUCED OUR FINES!
LIBRARY CARDS, LOAN PERIODS & FINES
Goal The intent of this policy is to set rules which provide fair and equal access to books and other library materials. The Library Board of Trustees delegates to the staff the authority to establish procedures and implement technology which supports this goal.
Library Cards Adults eighteen years of age or older with photo identification and proof of current address are eligible. Minors under eighteen years of age must have the approval of their parent/legal guardian in the library at the time card is issued. Adults are responsible for all charges to their account and their children’s account. A valid library card or photo identification which confirms the account must be presented at checkout. The library offers free borrowing privileges to all Utah residents. Visitors from out-of-state may be eligible for a temporary card ($5.00 fee), with which they may have 10 items checked out. This includes a maximum of 3 DVD’s 3 Music CDs, and 3 CD Books. Lost or stolen cards and changes in residence, email address, or telephone number should be reported as soon as possible to ensure prompt and accurate notification.
|Item Type||Loan Period||Limit||New Patron Limit||Fines|
|CD Book/CD Music||28 days||10||3||$.15|
|Hot Ticket Book||14 days||1||1||$.15|
|Hot Ticket DVD||4 days||1||1||$.50|
Children under 18 years of age may check out DVDs with parent’s/legal guardian’s permission. Library materials may be renewed twice unless a hold is pending. “Hot Ticket” items may not be renewed or placed on hold. Patrons may have 50 items checked out at a time. New patrons will have a one month probationary period in which they may have 10 items checked out. The maximum fine is $5.00 per item. Borrowing privileges are suspended when fines exceed ten dollars ($10.00).
While every effort is made to notify patrons of overdue items, patrons are responsible for the return of items, regardless of overdue notification by the library. Patrons who fail to return materials or disregard overdue or billing notices will be referred to a collection agency, at which time a ten dollar ($10.00) recovery cost fee will be assessed.
