Library Charges and Overdue Notices


If I return my library items late, is there a charge?

When DVDs are returned late, the fee is .25 cents per day per item. You are charged 25ยข per day for all other items. If an item is overdue more than 35 days, a billing fee of $20 will be charged to your account. You may view your fines and bills at My Library Record, under Unpaid Fines and Bills. Fines can be paid online with a credit or debit card after logging in.

If I receive an overdue message or bill and want to talk to someone at the library, what number do I call?

Submit a service request or contact the Overdues Department at 510-881-7983.

How much will it cost if I lose a library item?

You will be charged for the cost of the lost item plus a non-refundable $6 processing fee.

Will I be stopped from borrowing if I owe money?

Your account is delinquent if there are unpaid charges of $20 or more, or if materials are more than 35 days overdue. That means that you may not borrow more materials or renew others. Delinquent accounts may also be referred to a collection agency.

How can I tell what items I have checked out?

You receive a printout of the material borrowed at the time of checkout. You can check your own record online at My Library Record.

For further information, call the library at 510-881-7983.
