Scanners are located at the public computers and in the genealogy area.  Staff members will give instructions as time allows.  There is no cost to do your own scanning.  Scanning done by library staff costs $0.15 per page and can be emailed or saved to a flash drive.

Library staff will provide copies of obituaries upon request for a fee of $4.00 per obituary.
Other genealogy and local history-related research will be provided for $10.00 per hour.

There are two book returns (inside and outside/alley) for patron convenience.  Items should be placed inside a book return by the end of the due date in order to avoid overdue fines.  Materials too large for the book returns must be returned at the front desk during library hours.

Overdue fines are $0.10 per day for books and magazines.  DVD and Giant Chess/Checkers fines are $1.00 per day.  Cake Pan and CD/Book-on-CD fines are $0.25 per day.

The maximum fine is $10.00 per item, except for paperback books and magazines which have a maximum fine of $7.00 per item.  When the maximum fine has accrued, borrowing privileges are suspended.

Items that are six months overdue are designated as lost.  The replacement cost is charged for lost items, plus a $5.00 processing fee.  The supervisor on duty will determine charges assessed for damaged items.

Library cards may not be renewed until all fines are paid.
