Replacement Costs & Fees

 

Replacement Fees

Cost

 Replace Lost, Damaged, or Incomplete Items

  • Actual replacement cost. 
  • Items that are 21 days overdue are considered lost and the replacement charges will be billed to your account.  When the item is returned, the fee will be removed from your account.
  • Due to the nature of library materials, replacements provided by the patron are generally not accepted and the actual replacement charge for the lost or damaged item is issued.
  • Any multi-part item returned incomplete (missing discs or components) is subject to replacement costs for the full set of items.
