Loan Periods & Fines

Fines / Charges

Pemberton is a FINES FREE Library. Our policy is this:

  • Fines will not be charged for overdue items.
  • Materials may be renewed 3 times,  If items are not returned by their due date, an overdue reminder will be issued at 7 days and again at 14 days. A third and final reminder will be issued at 21 days after which point the materials will be considered lost.  The replacement cost will then be billed to the patron’s account.
  • Borrowing privileges will be suspended if patrons have reached the maximum renewals allowed on their borrowed items or if they have fees for lost items on their account.
  • Patrons can choose to receive email notices notifying them of overdue items and can access and manage their account online through the Library website.

Damaged and lost materials: you will be charged the replacement cost.

All items may be renewed three times.

If an item has a hold on it by another patron, it is not renewable.

An adult patron has a limit of 30 items in total.

A junior member is restricted to borrowing junior items only and has a limit of 15 items, 3 of which may be multimedia.
