The goal of the library fine is to promote the return of all library materials so that others may use them. The library is supported through tax revenues and the library must maintain the collection in a proper and orderly manner. Fines are the processing fees for overdue materials. Thus, the processing fees will be charged to those borrowers who fail to return library materials promptly.

If library material was lost or stolen while the material was lent to the borrower, the borrower must pay for the cost of said material.
