the event a patron forgets their Library Card, we will allow them to
check out items with a picture I.D. which has their name, address and
Social Secuirty number that matches the personal information in our patron
database, or, if the staff person checking out the patron can personally
verify who they are. Library cards that are lost can be replaced for
loans, (defined as requests by patrons for materials shipped between branches
of the Briggs Lawrence County Public Library system), shall be limited to
no more than 5 requests per patron, per day, up to a maximum of 15 requests
per patron per month. (For example,
a patron at one branch could only request a maximum of 5 items from another
branch per day. Staff at the
originating Branch is responsible to explain to patrons that only 5 requests
per day per patron, or 15 requests per patron per month, will be submitted
to another branch).
Inter-library loans, defined as requests by patrons of Briggs Lawrence County Library for materials from other Library systems, shall be limited to no more than 12 requests per patron per month.
Patrons and Staff may only renew an item twice, by phone or in person, unless the item has been placed on hold. Items on hold should not be renewed. (Staff should explain to the patron that wants to renew an item that there are other patrons that have been waiting to check out that item, and that we must try to be fair to everyone. We will put the patron's name that wants to renew the item on the hold list so they can check it out again.)
Fines will be $.05 per day, for Books, Magazines, CDís, Audio books and Books on CD, with a maximum fine of $5.00 per item.
