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.
