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 Council will charge full replacement cost of the item including processing.

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, and we always prefer to see items returned so that others may use them.
