All about FVRLibraries bills

FVRLibraries doesn't charge daily fines for overdue materials. We haven't since 1970! However, we do bill for these reasons:

  • An item is returned damaged beyond repair
  • An item is returned, but is missing parts
  • An item is not returned or renewed for 28 days from the due date. At that point, we consider it lost, and we bill you for the price of the item.
  • An interlibrary loan item is damaged or lost

How to check for bills

To see if your library account has any bills on it, sign in to your account and click the "Bills" tab.

How bills affect your library privileges

Your library card will be blocked and privileges suspended:

  • If you owe $25 or more for FVRL items billed as lost or damaged, or
  • If you owe any amount for an interlibrary loan item.

If your library privileges have been blocked, here's how to restore them:

  • For a blocked account: Resolve your account balance to under $25, either through payment or return of billed materials.
  • For an account blocked by interlibrary loan (ILL) bills: Resolve the entire amount charged by the lending library.
