• DCLS Fines and Fees

    DVD/Blu-ray Fees

    Starting September 11, 2015

    Due to a software issue, we are currently unable to renew entertainment DVD's and Blu-ray discs. These items can only be checked out for one week.

    What does this mean for you?
    You will still only be charged $.50 for each day you have the item, even if you have it for longer than 7 days.

    You will receive overdue notices for items not returned by the original due date.

    We deeply apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. 

    Please Note: The software problem with renewals caused some patrons to be overcharged for DVD and Blu-ray rentals. If you think this may have happened to you, please ask a staff person at any library to review your account.

    Thank you for your patience and understanding, and continued use of The Library.

    Pay by the Day!

    If you cannot find your library card, please contact us immediately. A staff member will deactivate the lost card right away to prevent unauthorized use.

There is a $2 fee to replace lost cards.

    DCLS covers basic fees for ILL materials. If a lending library assesses extra fees, those fees will be passed along to the patron.
