When items are overdue:
  • 10 days past due, the Free Library sends an overdue notice.

    This is the time to search under the bed, in the trunk of the car, at the bottom of the book bag for missing items—and return them to the Library. Books and magazines can be returned to any one of the Free Library's 54 locations.

    This is the time to visit the Library if you cannot find an item and settle your account. The Free Library can create a payment plan for patrons who are unable to clear their account in one installment.

  • 30 days past due, the Free Library sends a second overdue notice. Contact the Library immediately to resolve your account.
