Why does Great River Regional Library use a collection agency?

Great River Regional Library uses a collection agency, Unique Management Services, in order to recover materials and fees. The main goal of using the collection agency is to remind patrons of their overdue items and encourage returning them. If an account has a balance of $25 or more for 30 days, the account will be sent to the collection agency and a $10 fee added to the account.

Once an account is sent to collections, we still want to work with you. Our goal is to for our items to come back to us! If you are able to return our items in good condition and in a timely manner, the item costs will be removed from your account. Unfortunately, Collection agency fees cannot be waived.

If you receive a collection notice, please make your payment to GRRL, and send it in, with your account number, to
