Connecting: Your Library Easier to Use

by on September 3rd, 2014

Recently the Library Board voted to make changes to help make your Library easier to use. We also updated a couple procedures to respond to patrons requests.

Patrons may now place 10 (ten!) FREE holds.  Login to your account, call the Library or stop by – there are many ways to place holds.  We’ll even let you place holds on items that are on the shelf.  Periodically, throughout the day, staff pull items with holds that are on the shelf.  We just ask that you give us a little bit of time to do this work.  You’ll know when the hold is ready when we send you a notice.  Notices come by eMail, telephone or in the mail depending on your preference.

Overdue Fines changed too and we hope they are easier to understand.  All fines are 25 cents per overdue day with the following exceptions: Express DVDs, Games and Equipment are $1.00 per overdue day and Wii Game Consoles are $5.00 per overdue day.  Our goal is to make the collection as available to our community as possible.  We view fines as a motivation to return items on time so others can enjoy them.

Patrons may now receive one free replacement card per year.  We can also make a replacement card with the same number, so there’s no need to worry if you have your number memorized.  We need the original card in order to replace a card with the same number.  Also, it takes us a few minutes to make the card, so please plan for a little extra time if you are getting a card replaced with the same number.

Videogames may now be renewed 1 (one) time.  Patrons may still have a limit of 2 videogames checked out at a time, but they can be renewed once and the fine is now only 25 cents per overdue day.

We hope these changes will make it easier to use your Library and we hope to see you at the Library soon.
