Buchanan County Public Library

Borrowing Limits

Standard borrowing limits are a total of 20 items per in state card with these restrictions:

Maximum of 5 DVDs or BluRays

Maximum of 2 DVD Series titles

Maximum of 2 Cricut cartridges

Maximum of 2 video games

Out of state cards are limited to a total of 5 items with a 50 % of cost deposit.  The deposit will be refunded if items are returned on time and in good condition.  Those card holders living in the adjacent counties of Pike, KY and McDowell, WV will have this limit removed after three months if they have established a good patron record during that time period.

A good patron record consists of following library regulations and procedures, such as returning items undamaged and on time.  If items are late, all fines must be cleared at time of return or within one month of return.  If items are damaged or lost, items shall be paid for promptly.  The Library Director shall have the authority to abate the fees for lost or damaged items if it occurs less than twice in a five (5) year period.

While under a payment plan, a patron shall have a reduced borrowing limit.  This limit will be reviewed at the end of the plan.  At the library director’s discretion, a poor patron record may result in a reduced borrowing limit of 5 items with these restrictions:

Maximum of 2 video products

Maximum of 1 Cricut cartridge

Maximum of 1 video game

This limit may be removed once a good record is reestablished.   Good patron status will take five years to reestablish.
