Policy for Overdue Materials

  • The library does not charge late fees/fines for items returned beyond the due date.


  • Borrowers with two (2) or more overdue items and no remaining renewal options cannot check out any other materials. In the case of Croydon student borrowers, the limit is one (1) overdue item.


  • Patrons will be notified, if necessary, by multiple methods of overdue items. Should a third notice of overdue item(s) be necessary and/or the item(s) is/are determined to be lost or damaged beyond repair, the patron will be issued a bill for the item(s) replacement cost and a $5.00 per item processing fee.


  • All money collected from fines will be used for the purchase of new or replacement materials/media.



Most items can be renewed 2 times, provided there is no immediate demand for the title(s).

You can renew books online, in-person, or by calling us at 603-863-2172.
