Patrons are responsible for materials while on loan to them.  A patron who loses or mutilates library material shall be required to cover the cost of that material as follows:

a)    the cost of the book

b)    GST

c)     $10.00 processing fee (i.e. shipping and handling, etc.)

As the paperback collection consists of donated materials, patrons can replace damaged or lost papberbacks with a donation of another paperback. The classification of a paperback does not include soft cover materials located on the library shelves.
