Salem Township Library

Overdue Materials

Notification of overdue materials has resumed. You may receive a call or email letting you know that you still have items checked out that are past due. If you can, please return those items as soon as possible. We will not start collecting fines for overdue materials until November 1. However, our system will still process them as late and display any accrued fines on your account. This is important to note because billing notices are in effect. Any materials that are well overdue will result in a billing notice to replace said materials. Depending on the bill(s) you may not be able to check out materials until they are returned or paid for (if need be). Also, if the billing amount is high and well past due, you could go into collections.

We do not want this to happen to any of our patrons. So please be sure to return your items on time. If you have already returned your items to the drop box, no need to worry. Your books are sitting in quarantine waiting to be checked in; and everything will be taken care of then*. Just remember, our system still processes the late fees. So please take that into account, as well as the extra week of quarantine.

*Any materials that were due prior to COVID-19 and the library closure are still applicable and will still count after check-in.

We thank you for patience during this time.
