What if...

  • I don’t know when my items are due back.

    You can sign in to the library catalogue to see a summary of items on your card and when they are due back. You can also renew from there. Plus, you will receive notices about your items. If you have selected to get your notices via email, we will send a reminder email 3 days before an item is due. Everyone gets a reminder notice when items are 7 days overdue and a lost notice when items are 28 days overdue.
  • My items are overdue.

    Items up to 12 days overdue can be renewed on the website. If you cannot return your items, please contact any of our libraries. An overdue fee ( $2.80) is applied to each item when they are more than 14 days overdue. Replacement costs ( At Cost plus $6.00 per item) are applied to items more than 28 days overdue.
  • I’ve lost my library card.

    Contact any of our libraries immediately so that no one else can use your card. To get a new card, bring ID to your local library. A replacement card fee ( $3.00) may apply.
  • I've lost an item.

    If you've lost an item, or have received a lost notice for an item that is more than 28 days overdue and you cannot return it, please contact any of our libraries to discuss your options.
