New Circulation Rules

 

Our new software system allows us to do some fine-tuning.  Before, our fines capped at a low amount per item since the system didn’t distinguish between a $2.50 item and a $100 item.  The following are some of the categories & the rules:

New Movies: $1 a day fine, capping at $20, no renewals, maximum 2 per patron.

Books & Audio: 5 cents a day fine, capping at $3, up to 2 renewals.

Magazines: One week checkout, 5 cent a day fine, capping at $3, up to one renewal

DVDs, VHS & Music CDs: 7 day checkout, $1 a day fine, capping at $5.  Maximum 5 per person.

Multi-disc DVDs: 2 week checkout, $1 a day fine capping at $20. Maximum 5 per person.
