If any of the Library’s property is lost or damaged, borrowers agree to provide the cost of a repair or replacement.

Some items are only available for checkout by patrons 18 years or older due to safety concerns. If under 18, a parent or guardian must sign the waiver and be present to check out the item. The Library reserves the right to take equipment out of circulation temporarily to support a library program or for repair or maintenance. Library staff may limit the number of repeat loans of a specific item to one household in the interest of ensuring fair access for all library patrons.

A valid library card with no outstanding fines and no lost or billed items is required for checkout. All borrowers must sign a liability waiver.
