1Cost stated is the default cost. Actual cost may vary by item and does not include mandatory $15 processing fee.
2Interlibrary loan period and fees are determined by the lending library and will vary by item.
A 10 cent fine is accrued on a public patron’s account for each day that a book is overdue. Patrons will receive five overdue notices, indicating which books are checked out. Replacement and processing fees will then be applied for any unreturned books and the patron will receive a bill. This results in a Hold being placed on the patron’s library account. Borrowing privileges are suspended until the books are returned and the overdue fines paid, or until the patron pays lost book fees.
If a public patron has fines which have been left unpaid for over a year, or are in excess of $5.00, or has a lost book, they must pay the fines before borrowing additional books.
Community members may not borrow media (DVDs, audiobooks, video tapes).
The library owns several collections that may only be used within the library, including periodicals, newspapers, and reference books.
A selection of periodicals are located behind the Check Out Desk. To obtain one of these periodicals or newspapers, make a request at the Check Out Desk. An RVCC library card will be required. Current popular periodicals and newspapers are on display on the main floor of the library.
