Almost all our materials check out for two weeks. At checkout the patron receives a printout which lists each borrowed item and the due date. Reference items cannot be checked out. Patrons must present their PINES card to check out items.
If a book, video, DVD, or CD checks out for two weeks, it can be renewed for two more weeks. Most materials may be renewed for two checkout periods. Materials may be renewed over the phone, with your library card number, by calling during library hours. If a hold has been placed on an item, it cannot be renewed.
To renew online go to our web site at:
Click on enter. Enter your library card number (14 digit #). then enter your pin #. Click on renew materials. If you have already renewed twice or if there is a hold on the item, you will not be allowed to renew.
The overdue fine for materials is $.20 per day per item. The library gives a one day grace period for overdue materials.
If a book is lost, replacement fees are assessed. Replacement costs include the price of the book, a $10.00 processing fee, and any accrued fines.
A patron can place a hold for an item that is currently checked out. The exceptions are audio books, videos, DVDs, CDs and recently added titles such as bestsellers which may be held only if in the Fayette County Library collection.
The PINES System will keep the hold request until the item arrives. Library staff will then call the patron to alert them that the itemS is being held for them.
