A word regarding fees and fines
Library customers borrow over 50,000 items per year from the Richard C. Sullivan Public Library. In striving to assure that the greatest variety of materials are available for Library users, we have found that fines are an effective encouragement for prompt return of materials. We also apply certain fees that encourage appropriate use of our materials so that once returned, the items may be borrowed by others without delay.

We understand that due to a wide variety of circumstances such as illness or other unanticipated demands in our personal lives, materials are sometimes returned late. However, we do not attempt to judge any individual's circumstances as more excusable than another's. The impact of late returns is the same in all cases regardless of the cause. We do not provide exceptions based on cause.

As custodians of both the collection and the public's trust, the Library is committed to fair and consistent application of our policies. Holding all users equally accountable for the use of the Library and any fees or fines incurred is part of meeting that public obligation.

The Library works to encourage our borrowers to avoid accruing fines and fees. We provide notices to help educate and inform borrowers regarding the use of their account.

 

How can I avoid fines?

We provide many opportunities for you to avoid the accrual of fines on your library account. However, please remember that materials borrowed from the Richard C. Sullivan Public Library may only be returned here. Please note that materials returned to the after-hours drop will be considered returned on the next date on which the Library is open.

The Library provides 3 ways for you to renew your eligible material:
