Borrowing Policies

Library cards are free and expire every two years. Lost cards are $1.00. We ask that only children who can sign their name and take responsibility for borrowed materials register for a card.  Regular and keychain cards are available.

The loan period is 3 weeks for most materials. DVDs, video games and magazines have a 1 week loan period. (There is a 4 DVDs per patron limit and a 2 video games per patron limit).                

Materials can be renewed for an additional loan period (books for 3 more weeks, DVDs, video games and magazines for 1 more week).

We do not collect overdue fines for materials except DVDs and video games which are $1.00  per day with a maximum of $5.00 per item. We do charge a $5.00 processing fee for extremely overdue materials.        

Patrons will be charged the original purchase price for lost or damaged items, which remain the property of Princeton Public Library.
