Recent Policy Changes

Just a reminder that the policy changes we announced in October are now in effect. These include :

  • An increased loan period of 21 days on all items that previously went out for 14 days.  We still allow three renewals (also increased to 21 days) on any items that do not have a wait list.  Telescopes still loan for 7 days with no renewals, book club kits still loan for 42 days with one renewal, and DVDs/Blu-rays from other MLC libraries still loan according to the owning library’s rules.
  • Overdue fines have changed to 15¢ per day.  This represents an increase from 10¢ per day on most items and a decrease from 50¢ per day on DVDs, Blu-rays, and video games.
  • As of the announcement in October, replacement fees for lost materials no longer include a $3 processing fee.

If you have any questions or concerns about these changes, please feel free to call us at 314.961.3784 or contact us online.
