If you lose or damage an item, your account will be charged both a replacement fee and a processing fee. In most cases, the replacement fee will be for the list price of the item. In addition, there is a processing fee of $5.00.
In limited circumstances, a replacement item can be accepted instead of the replacement fee. Please contact library staff before purchasing a replacement item to see if that is possible. When items are replaced, the $5.00 processing fee must still be charged, as the lost item had already been prepared for library use.
More information on library fines and fees can be found in the City Code.
