Fees and Charges

Late returns & lost/damaged items

There are no fines for late returns.

If a book or Library item is overdue, the Library will contact you to remind you to return it.  However, if you do not reply to written requests to return overdue items the Council will charge you for the full replacement cost of the item including processing. Council may also undertake proceedings to recover this debt.

Items which have been lost or returned damaged will incur a fee for replacement cost of the item including processing. Council may also undertake proceedings to recover this debt.

There is an after-hours returns chute at Picton Library for the return of Library items.  Library items are publicly-funded items of community property. We always prefer to see items returned so that others may use them.
