  • The Library is not responsible for any items kept in the locker.

  • Inspections of lockers are conducted regularly by Library staff, who are authorized by the renter to remove materials which violate the locker regulations (i.e., uncharged library books, hazardous materials, or food items).

  • Uncharged and non-circulating materials will be removed from the locker. A fine of $5.00 per item will be charged to your library record.

  • If violations are found on 2 inspection tours, locker use privileges will be permanently revoked.

  • You may not change lockers unless there is something physically wrong with the locker you have been assigned.

  • Materials left in a locker after expiration will incur a clear-out fine of $10.00, charged to your library account. The Library is authorized to dispose of any personal materials stored in the locker after the expiration date.

  • We keep locker fees low to encourage individual renters. For security reasons, please be careful to keep your locker combination to yourself.
