Returning & Book Boxes

You may return our items to any C/W MARS library. You may also return items from other C/W MARS libraries to us. If placing items in the outdoor box, they may not be checked in until the next business day.

Two outdoor book boxes are located at the Newton Street entrance at the rear of the building. Books and magazines, CDs, cassettes, videos, and DVDs can be returned in the book drop. Please do not leave DVDs or CDs in the book drop overnight as they may be easily damaged by temperature extremes.

Reminders & Overdue Notices

Due date reminders are sent via email 2 days before your item is due. Overdue Notices are sent when an item on your record is 14 days overdue. If you have questions about the accuracy of an overdue notice, please call during business hours.


Fines for DVDs and video games are $1.00/business day with maximum fines of $5.00 per item. The fine for late return of a museum pass is $5.00. Overdue Bills are sent when an item is 28 days overdue. At that time, your borrowing privileges will be suspended and you will not be able to circulate items until the overdue item is returned or replaced. Fines for items obtained from other libraries will accrue according to the originating library's fine policy. Please notify us immediately if a library item has been lost or damaged.
