Library Tips & Tricks


When you borrow an item from the library you have a set amount of time before you have to return it, usually 3 weeks for books, 1 week for movies, plus renewals. If you haven't returned the item on or before its return date, it's considered overdue.

Once your item is 7 days late, you will receive an overdue notice and your card will be blocked from placing holds, receiving automatic renewal of other checked out items, or from borrowing new items until late items are returned or renewed.

You will receive a second notice 7 days after the first and the same blocks still apply.

If you still haven't returned the item in the 30 days after you receive the second notice, you will be billed for that item. The bill is for the full purchase price of the item at the time the library bought it.

You can return most library materials at any RI public library (bulky items should be returned to their owning library.) If you think you've returned an item that you are receiving overdue notices for, please ask us to check our shelves before you turn your house upside down! Mistakes do happen. If you know that an item is truly lost, please talk to us about making arrangements to pay for or replace it.
