Lost or Damaged Library Materials
Borrowers are financially responsible for lost or damaged library material and/or equipment checked out on their ID card. They are expected to periodically check their individual accounts online to determine the status of charges, overdue materials, holds and ILL requests. If library books are damaged (especially by water), please return them immediately to Circulation so appropriate measures can be taken to repair them.
All items four weeks overdue are considered lost and library accounts will be billed for the replacement cost. The charges for lost books returned are automatically credited on your account. It is the borrower’s responsibility to make an appeal of library charges. Contact Us at 354-8221 ext. 327 or come to the library office on the upper level.
The replacement cost of an MLC library item is subject to availability. The cost for an item on loan from another library is determined by that library. Lost items remain on your library record until the item is returned or arrangements have been made for its replacement. This allows an automatic credit (except for service charge and overdue fines) if items are returned and usually will not affect your borrowing privileges.
