  • No appeals will be accepted by telephone or in person.
  • Charges may be upheld, reduced or cancelled.

  • The appeal process may take 1-2 weeks to complete.
  • You will be notified by e-mail or US mail of the results of your inquiry.

Please Note: Appeals based on not knowing the library rules or the amount of fines, claiming your need was greater than another's, being too busy, being out of town, uncertainty about the due date, failing to receive an overdue notice, or failing to read your e-mail are generally not regarded as valid reasons for cancelling or reducing library charges.
