All circulating materials owned by the Irondequoit Public Library may be borrowed with a valid library card issued by any member library of the Monroe County Library System. The materials may be returned to any member library of the Monroe County Library System. When you receive a library card you agree to be responsible for all items checked out to that card. All materials are carefully checked for damage and missing parts when returned with special attention to audio books, music CDs, DVDs, and video games.

If items are returned with a missing barcode, a $0.50 fee will be assessed. Additional fees may be assessed for damaged or missing materials and/or cases. For a complete list of fines and fees, please ask at the circulation desk.

All items returned late are assessed a $0.35 per day fee. If fines and/or fees reach a total of $5.00 borrowing privileges will be suspended until paid. Fines and fees are established by the Library Board of Trustees and the Monroe County Library System.

Adult – $7.00
Young Adult – $5.00
Children – $3.00

Materials not returned within 43 days of the due date are considered lost. Fees for lost items include the current replacement cost of the item plus a $5.00 processing fee. If materials are returned after billing occurs, only the maximum late charge is applied.

Accounts totaling $35.00 or more in fines and/or lost materials are referred to the Unique Management Services collection agency 18 days after the bill for replacement has been issued. A non-returnable $20.00 service charge is added to each account referred to collection. The collection agency will make several attempts to reach you over the course of 60 days. If your account is not cleared, credit reporting agencies will be notified which could adversely affect your credit rating. If you receive an overdue notice or bill for replacement and you believe it is in error, please call the library and ask the librarian to check our shelves.

Memorial gifts are a lasting tribute to a beloved family member or friend. Gifts made to the Irondequoit Public Library will be used to purchase appropriate items which will be added to the collection. Each gift will be acknowledged with a bookplate.
