Your card is for your use only. By signing your library card, you accept responsibility for all fees incurred and for lost or damaged materials borrowed with your card or on the card for your dependent children.
Lost or Stolen Cards: If your card is lost or stolen, let us know immediately. The cardholder is responsible for items checked out before the card is reported missing.
Damaged Materials: If an item is damaged, bring the damaged item to the library. We will assess the damage and ask you to pay accordingly. If the damage is severe or the item is lost, you will need to pay the price of the item plus the processing fee.
Updating Personal Information
If the information on your library record changes, please update the information on your card by informing our staff. If you have a change in residence, you will be required to show proof of your current physical address. If you move outside of the city limits of New Plymouth, you will be required to pay the annual non-resident fee.
