Renewals and returns
Your item will automatically renew if renewals are allowed and no one else has a hold on it. You will receive an email notification with the new due date.
You can return materials to the return slot in the library or to the exterior book drop (open 24/7 on the east side of the library).
Fines and fees
NVCL does not charge fines on overdue materials. We charge the replacement cost (plus a processing fee) for lost, damaged and long-overdue (6 weeks) items assumed to be lost.
There is no fee to place holds on titles in our catalogue. When your hold is ready you will receive an email, and you have 7 days to come in and pick up your hold, which must be done during open hours. There is a $1 fee for holds that are not picked up and checked out.
Different types of library materials have different loan periods. Most regular materials are 4 weeks, and high-demand items such as new books, DVDs and video games are 2 weeks.
