Items may be renewed up to five times as long as no one has them on hold. You may renew materials online , automatically by phone (1-877-772-6657), by phone with a library staff member or in person with your library card.
Loan Periods & Fines
Please return your library materials on time so they will be available for other library users.
The Fairfield County District Library no longer charges daily incremental fines for overdue materials, but there are still charges for lost or damaged materials.If you forget to return your library materials on time, you will receive two reminders and then a bill for the entire cost of the overdue materials. If you owe fines over $100, your account will be sent to a collection agency and an additional non-refundable fee of $10 will be added to the balance due on your account.
Once you owe more than $2 in fines or you have more than four overdue items, your borrowing privileges will be blocked.
If you find a lost item within one year year after the due date, bring it to any library location and receive a refund or credit on your account.
