Fines and Fees Policy
Troy-Miami County Public Library
 (Approved  August 14, 2019 by the Troy-Miami County Public Library Board of Trustees)

Library materials should be returned in a timely fashion so that they will be available for all members of the community on a regular basis. Borrowing library materials is a privilege extended to any patron with a valid Troy-Miami County Public Library card or consortium library card. Library patrons are responsible for the care and return of items checked out on their library cards and will be charged for lost and damaged items. The charging of replacement costs for lost or damaged items is a tool for encouraging patrons to return library materials on time and in good condition. The library reserves the right to restrict borrowing privileges on accounts for those who have not returned materials and/or paid fees.
