Fines accumulate until items are returned or renewed

Maximum number of items allowed to be checked out per card is 50.

If overdue materials are returned after the item has been deleted from the library catalog, patrons will be charged the applicable fines per day, plus the appropriate processing fee.

Renewals may be done in person, over the phone (630-653-0755) or via the online catalog, accessible through the Library’s web page. Three renewals per item are allowed, unless the item has been reserved. Online renewals must take place before the item is overdue. Items on loan from another library are subject to the renewal policy of that library.

Unresolved charges on juvenile accounts will be transferred to the responsible party’s account for credit reporting. A billing fee of $10.00 is also assessed on all accounts referred to a materials recovery service.
