Yesterday was "I Forgot" Day.
Anything you've forgotten recently?
What an excellent time to remind you all of our library fines!
To avoid an awkward library experience, keep track of your checked-out materials' due dates. When you get a slip at the check-out counter, keep it. Stick it on your fridge, on your book, on your forehead...whatever works.
Remember, everything you check out at the library is absolutely FREE. Unless it's late.
When you check out books, CDs, and talking books, you've got two weeks. If no one else has a hold on them, you may renew two more times, for two more weeks each time.
DVDs may be checked out for one week and renewed one more time for an additional week. The exception is 7-day items that may only be checked out for one week with no renewals. And magazines can't be renewed at all.
If you lose your slip, or your dog eats it, and you accidentally keep your items too long, you'll have some fines. Books/CDs/talking books are $0.25 a day and movies are $1 a day. For adult and children's material.
So don't forget!
