Check Out Policies

Check Out Period
All materials may be checked out for 2 weeks. Patrons needing longer may renew material for up to 2 additional 2-week periods. Reserved material, interlibrary loan items, video games and videos may not be renewed. Material may be renewed online through the Pinal County Library District System by going to the Patron Account webpage or over the phone.

Late Return Fines
Prompt return of library materials ensures everyone better access. To help us provide optimum service to all our customers, we employ an extended use fine system. If your materials become overdue, we will contact you by the method you have set for your library account; the default will be automatic phone messaging if no method has been chosen by you. Fines are assessed from the first day past due on a per day, per item basis as follows:
  • Books, popular books, paperbacks, audio cassettes and kits - $0.10 per day
  • Interlibrary loan material - $1.00 per day

For unreturned items, there will be a processing fee added to the replacement cost of the item(s). Failure to return items will also necessitate restriction of library privileges.

Check Out Levels
As new patrons are issued a borrower’s card, they will be limited to borrowing 2 items from the library’s circulating collection. After those materials are returned the following parameters will be in force at any given time:

  • Video - 2 items
  • Audio - 4 items
  • Books - 10 items (Limit 4 per subject in non-fiction)
