Policies

In order to serve you better, the Library has initiated the following:

In order to use this library, you must register your full name, address, and telephone number. This information is kept confidential and we ask that you update us with any new changes. Please present your library card each time you check out material. Library cards may be replaced if lost for $1.00.

All Library materials may be borrowed for a period of 2 weeks and may be renewed one time provided there is no waiting list. The exception to this is the DVD’s, which may be borrowed for 1 week.

If we do not have the item you are looking for, please ask about our Interlibrary Loan Service. There is no charge for this service if we find it within our library system.

We have no limit on the items you may take out. Again, the exception is DVD’s. A limit of five (5) per card please. We do ask that you take out no more print material than can be reasonably read in a 2 week period.

Books and other Library materials are the property of the Library and can be returned anytime the Library is open or through the book drop when we are closed.

All materials should be returned by the date on your receipt.  Fines for overdue material are 5 cents per day per book and 50 cents per day per video/DVD material with a maximum of $10.00 per item. You may renew your materials online or call the library.

Material that is lost or damaged beyond repair will be replaced at the expense of the patron.

We here at the Ashville Library look forward to the opportunity to serve you and your family.
