Returned items are being quarantined for a period of time before they are checked in. Check-ins are backdated to the day they were placed in the book returns.
When we check items in after being in quarantine, we've been finding some patrons have included money to pay their fines. Please avoid doing this, as money can easily come loose in the book drop. Instead, stop by the desk in the inner lobby where we can accept your payments. If you have any questions about your account please call 603-332-1428 ext 2.
