CHECK-OUT GUIDE
Patrons must have their library card in order to check out any items from the library; they are responsible for all items borrowed on this card. The computer automatically accumulates any late fines on your card and will mail or e-mail notices, if necessary.

GETTING A LIBRARY CARD
In order to register for a card, patrons over the age of 18 must show photo ID with current mailing address. Those under 18 must have a photo ID and a parent's signature.

Lost library cards may be replaced for $1.00.

FINES
DVDs/videos incur a $1.00 fine for each day they're late.  Fines on all other items are $0.10/day. Fines are only accumulated on days when the library is open, with a maximum being the cost of the item.

No library material shall be withdrawn if the borrower has more than $5.00 of unpaid fines.  A lost card cannot be replaced until all fines are paid.

RENEWALS
All material checked-out from the Barnesville Library may be renewed twice, either in person, on the phone, or through the online library catalog.  If an item is on hold for another patron this item can not be renewed.

No library material shall be withdrawn if the borrower has more than $5.00 of unpaid fines. A lost card cannot be replaced until all fines are paid.

DVD/VIDEO POLICY
Circulate for 1 week.  Patrons must be 18 or older to borrow videos/DVDs. You may have only 5 titles on your card at a time and may renew them twice.

GENEALOGY BOOKS

INTERLIBRARY LOAN SERVICE
Material requested in from other libraries in the SEO Consortium System via interlibrary loan is free, items requested outside of the system are subject to the charge of the postage.  These items maintain the same circulation policy as materials taken from the Barnesville Library. Items will be held for nine days after patron notification.

For more information, contact the library at 425-1651.

DAMAGED/LOST MATERIAL
