We are passionate about providing equitable library access to ALL of our patrons so Treat Memorial is fine free! We will not be collecting fines and we will be waiving existing charges for overdue materials. Our fine free policy will apply ONLY to overdue items, there will still be fees for lost or damaged items attached to patron accounts. The Overdue Book Ordinance states that library materials are considered stolen if not returned within a reasonable period of time after the due date. The police may be notified. All book costs and court charges will be paid by the person on whose record the materials were checked out.
We have a two week check out time for general materials. Items from the New Adult section may not exceed two per account. DVDs and Music CDs may be checked out for one week, with a limit of five per account for DVDs.
Renewals and reserves may be placed through the catalog, by phone, email Alana email@example.com or at the Circulation Desk. For inter-library loans, you can log into your account, call the library or email Brianna at firstname.lastname@example.org.
