Lost Item Policy

Sorry, but according to Library policy established
by the Board of Trustees, we do NOT accept 
a purchased copy in lieu of payment.

If the price of an item is not listed in the item record,
the Montvale Library charges the unit price as listed below.

Cash or check payments for lost materials will be refunded
if the items are returned within thirty (30) days of the payment date.

Credit card payments (online only; program begins sometime in 2018)
will not be refunded, even if the items are subsequently returned.

Payment for an item belonging to another library 
MUST be by a check made out to the owning library. 

If the Montvale Library reimburses another library for material 
borrowed by or for a Montvale cardholder and not returned by the 
cardholder, that cardholder is responsible for the entire reimbursement cost 
even if the cardholder finally returns the lost material.
