ARTICLE VI - CIRCULATION POLICY

Adopted 6/1/93
Revised 10/3/99
Revised 1/10/00

Section 1.
The library will serve all residents of the community and the public library system area.. Service will not be denied or abridged because of religious, racial, social, economic or political status.

Section 2.
The use of the library may be denied for due cause. Such cause may include but not be limited to failure to return library materials or to pay penalties, destruction of property, disturbance of other patrons, or any other objectionable conduct on library premises.

Young children: The Neuschafer Community Library encourages visits by young children and it is our desire to make this important visit both memorable and enjoyable for the child. Library staff is not expected to assume responsibility for the care of unsupervised children in the library. Therefore it is recommended that all children under the age of six be accompanied by a parent or designated responsible person while in the library. Should a child become disruptive, the child will be given a warning that he/she must settle down or will be asked to leave the library. Children required to leave the library may contact a parent or guardian and wait quietly until picked up.

Section 3.
Confidentiality. All records, formal and informal, in the Neuschafer Community Library relating to patron registration and the subsequent circulation by patrons of materials provided by the Library are considered to be confidential in nature.

Only information requested for by a court order covered under the Freedom of Information Act may be released.

Section 4.
Registration

  1. All borrowers must be registered and must have an OWLSnet library card # assigned to them to borrow library materials.
  2. All library cards expire after three (3) years. In order to renew a library card, patrons must produce identification and must clear all outstanding fines and bills.
  3. All borrowers must produce their card to borrow items at each visit.
  4. Non-area residents may borrow books upon issue of a temporary OWLSnet card (for six months). They must furnish driver’s license number and local , plus home address, if seasonal resident or vacationer.
  5. Applicants under the age of 18 years old must have a parent or guardian give their consent on the application form before a new card can be issued. This parental signature is not required for children who are renewing cards.
  6. Materials may not be checked out until a library card is issued.

Section 5.
Lost or forgotten cards.

  1. If a patron loses his/her library card, there is a $3.00 charge for replacement.
  2. Any patron, adult or juvenile, who presents material for checkout but cannot present a library card because it has been forgotten will only be allowed to checkout materials with the proper picture ID such as a drivers license.

Section 6.
Loan Periods.

  1. Patrons may take as many library materials as they wish for a period of one month. Materials may be renewed once by phone or in person.
  2. New books will be checked out for a period of 14 days and can be renewed once if the item is not reserved by another patron.
  3. Reference books cannot be withdrawn.
  4. Films and video cassettes from another library will be loaned out from one open library day to the next. All rules and regulations of the lending library will apply.
  5. Reserve holds may be placed by patrons either in person or over the phone.

Patrons will be notified by postcard or phone when the materials are available. There is no charge to the patron for placing a reserve hold or for interlibrary loan services.

Section 7.
Fines and charges.

There are fines for overdue materials as posted in the library. A notice is given after the material is due. A fee will be assigned to each item. Patrons who have been sent an overdue notice shall be denied borrowing of additional materials until those over dues are returned or paid for if lost and/or damaged.
