Reserves, Renewals, and Returns

RESERVES
You may place holds on all materials except Reference titles and Local History titles owned by the Woodbridge Library. Holds may also be placed on items in other LION libraries.

RENEWALS
You may extend the due date on all library items (except DVD’s) in person or by calling the library, as long as no other library user has placed a reserve on them. You may also renew items online from the catalog.

When you reserve by phone, please be patient. Renewals take time and if you call at a busy time, we may put you on hold. Evenings are a good time to call. The number is 203-389.3433.

RETURNING
You may return books and magazines either to the circulation desk or to the exterior book drops which are open 24 hours each day.

LATE CHARGES: If you do not return most items by the date due, late charges are 10 cents per day. Fines accumulate until the item is returned or paid for. DVD’s are fined at $1.00 per late day.  If you have more than $25.00 in charges on your library record, you will not be able to borrow items until the fines are brought under $25.00.

REPLACEMENT COSTS: Patrons must pay full replacement cost for items lost or damaged. Once lost or damaged items are paid for, they automatically become the property of the person who paid for the items.

RETURNED CHECKS: A fee of $30.00 is attached to a patron record for a returned check.

RETURNING BOOKS TO OTHER LIBRARIES: You may return books to the Woodbridge Library that were borrowed from other public libraries in Connecticut. We will return the books via the Connecticar system. Also, you may return books borrowed from the Woodbridge Library by dropping them off at any Connecticut public library. Please note that the user is responsible for library materials until they are received by the lending library.
