Important note: We do charge a $10.00 billing fee for all materials, whether fines are charged or not, if the material is so far overdue that a bill is produced.  The billing fee applies to all patron types and is non-negotiable.  Most materials bill at 90 days overdue, though short term checkouts (Bound Journals, DVDs, etc) bill at 30 days overdue.
