Lost Materials and Replacement Policy

If a patron loses an item, they are responsible for the cost of the item. Replacement items may be accepted. Patrons will receive a full refund of the amount paid for a lost item if item is found and returned within 30 days of payment.

Bemis Public Library may accept replacements for lost/damaged items in certain situations. The following conditions apply:

· The patron MUST reach agreement with the ordering librarian responsible for the collection the item is in prior to purchasing a replacement. Bringing a replacement item to the library without discussing it first with the librarian does not obligate the library to accept the item.

· Replacement items must be new items. Used items will not be accepted. 

· A $2.50 processing fee will be charged for all replacement items.
