Library card responsibility

A Library card is a powerful resource that grants access to limitless information.

  • A card holder is NOT responsible for all items checked out on the card.
  • The Library assumes the person presenting a card is the cardholder or has been authorized by the cardholder to use the card, unless the card has been reported lost or stolen.
  • It is preferred that a Library card is presented each time materials are borrowed. If the customer does not have his/her card with him/her see III. LOANS A. BORROWING WITHOUT A CARD.
  • Lost or stolen cards may be replaced by providing identification. There is no fee for a replacement card.
  • A person other than the cardholder may renew a card and pay the renewal fee, but is not entitled to any other information about the card.
  • Customers must inform the Library of all name and address changes.
  • To prevent unauthorized use, all lost or stolen cards must be reported promptly to the Library. Cards reported as Lost or Stolen and subsequently found or recovered can only be re-instated by customers with proper identification.
