Library users will still be charged replacement costs for items that are lost or damaged. If an item is not returned or renewed within 28 days of the due date, the item will be considered lost and a replacement charge will be added to that user’s library account. That user will be blocked from checking out additional items until the charges are paid or the items are returned.
