Community Patrons Policy
Applying for a Card
Members of the local community, including Wittenberg graduates, may apply for a Thomas Library Community Patron card. Applicants must have:
- a reference
- AND must present a driver's license
- AND local library card
Community borrowers may not make use of the OhioLINK borrowing system, nor may they borrow books from the Leisure Collection. Community patrons are restricted to borrowing a total of 10 items and are allowed to borrow only 5 books from the CRC collection.
Overdue notices will be sent to the address on file for a community patron and fines of $.05 per day will be assessed for regular stack books and $.10 per day is the fee for overdue CRC materials. A lost or damaged Thomas Library book will carry a replacement cost of $50.00 per item in keeping with the costs required of other borrowers.
