What happens if I don't return overdue items...
Contact your library as soon as possible to report the problem.
Fees range from $1 to the item's full replacement cost.
(If your item was overdue, this will stop any additional late fees from being charged to your card.)
If the library is closed now, you can use the Report Lost Item form.
After you have reported the item as returned, if the library doesn't find it on the shelf, or find out that it is checked out to someone else, you will be given a 2 month grace period to try and find it.
During that time, both you and library staff will look for the missing item.
If it's not found after 2 months, you will be billed for the item’s replacement cost, plus any late fees before it was reported missing.
If the item is found, late fees will be charged up to the time the item was returned.
If your library is closed now, you can use the Report Damaged Items form.
Your library will probably need to look at the item to determine what charges, if any, you will need to pay.
