Lost or Damaged Items
A cardholder is responsible for all materials checked out on his or her library card. Parents are responsible for items checked out by their children.
The charge for lost or damaged materials is the value of the item, plus any applicable fees. Excessive charges for overdue, lost or damaged materials will result in a loss of borrowing privileges.
Lost or Stolen Cards
Report loss or theft of a card promptly to avoid its unauthorized use; the cardholder is responsible until the loss is reported. There is a $1 fee to replace a lost card. Report lost cards by calling (803) 929-3456.
