Lost and Damaged Materials

If materials are lost or damaged so as to be judged by the library as being unsuitable for the collection, the patron will be responsible for the replacement of the item. A notice of these charges will be sent to the borrower. If the borrower chooses, he/ she may replace the item with the same title bought at a store or on the Internet. In this case, a $3.00 processing fee will be charged. If the borrower does not make timely arrangements with the library director regarding the replacement of lost or damaged materials, the default cost set by Winnefox Automated Library System will be charged to the patron in addition to a $3.00 processing fee and any overdue fines that have accumulated.
