Columbus Public Library e-Reader Lending Policy

  1. 1. E- READER LENDING POLICY BORROWER CRITERIA: To borrow an e-reader from the Columbus Public Library, the patron must have a current Columbus Public Library card in good standing (per Privileges and Account Collection policy). A patron who borrows an e-reader is required to complete a Borrower's Agreement and provide credit card information, or a security check (written for the maximum cost of device and accessories, which will not be deposited unless the item is not returned) and a valid photo ID. This information will be kept in a secure location. First time borrowers will receive training from Library staff prior to borrowing an e-reader. CONTENT: The Columbus Library has a collection of e-books loaded on each e-reader from which patrons may choose. CHECK OUT PROCEDURE: E-readers may be reserved. When the e-reader becomes available we will notify the patron and hold it for 7 days. E-readers may be checked out for 3 weeks with one 3-week renewal. RETURN PROCEDURE: E-readers may not be returned in the book drop. E-readers must be given to a staff member who will complete the check in procedure. They may not be left at an unattended desk. Readers and accessories will be checked for functionality and condition. Fines and/or fees will be tabulated (if any) and security check or credit card information will be returned. OVERDUE FINES AND/OR FEES: Overdue fines will be charged according to the Schedule of Fines and Fees up to a maximum of the cost of the device and accessories reached at 30 days overdue. The patron will be charged replacement fees for any items not returned in the e-reader kit, or for items returned damaged. The Columbus Public Library reserves the right to replace the device with a

Any titles purchased will be charged to the patron's account. Items not returned within 30 days of due date will be charged to the patron’s credit card (with an additional $5 fee) or their security check will be deposited. If payment is rejected, accounts not settled within 30 days will be turned over to a collection agency. The Columbus Public Library reserves the right to refuse this service to patrons who do not follow the Borrower’s Agreement or are repeatedly late in returning devices.
