What happens if I forget to return my materials on time?

Great River Regional Library does not charge overdue fines for juvenile and young adult items. For all other items, daily charges are assessed for each item that is not returned on time. Fines vary by type of item. A list of these fines, as well as other related information, can be found on the Fines & Fees answer page.

After 45 days overdue, items are automatically set to "lost" and the patron is charged the cost of the item/s as well as a processing fee. This includes juvenile and young adult items. If the items are returned undamaged in a timely manner, the item costs may be removed from charges.

Accounts owing $25 or more may be sent to collections.

Items from the digital library are automatically "returned" once their loan period is up.
