Morley Library does not charge fines for overdue materials. Exceptions are Morley WiFi Hotspots and materials owned by other libraries.

If you do not return your items within 28 days of the due date, a charge for the total cost of the items may appear on your account. This charge will be removed as soon as the items are returned in good condition. If the fines or fees on your account are $10.00 or more, your account will be blocked until the overdue items are returned or your account balance is reduced to less than $10.00. If you have 12 or more items overdue, your account will be blocked until the items are returned. Patrons may have no more than 100 items checked out at a time. 

A non-refundable material recovery referral fee of $10.00 will be charged to accounts referred to Unique Management for collection.

Golden Buckeye and Veteran library cardholders are granted 1 extra week on all book and book on CD checkouts.

Teachers and parents who home school their children may apply for an Educator Card, which allows them to check out library materials for 9 weeks. 

Please note: If you borrow items from other libraries within CLEVNET, those items are subject to the lending policies of the owning library. Loan periods are determined by the owning library. 

Wi-Fi Hotspots may only be checked out to Morley Library cardholders and must be returned to Morley Library.

Video Games and Wi-Fi Hotspots may not be borrowed until thirty 30 days after a new card has been issued.

Framed Art, Video Games, Wi-Fi Hotspots, Magazines, Theme Units, Classroom Aids and Board Games are not renewable and cannot be reserved.

Framed Art, Video Games, Wi-Fi Hotspots, and Board Games cannot be checked out again until one day after returned.

Automatic Renewals

Materials will automatically renew one day before an item is due. This service does not apply to digital materials (i.e. Libby).

Materials will not automatically renew if:

· Someone else has placed a hold on the item.

· The item has reached its renewal limit (renewal limits vary by library system and item type).

· Your account is blocked due to excess fines or fees.

If an item cannot be renewed, you may receive a courtesy due soon notice (via PHONE, EMAIL, or Text) the evening before your materials are due. Materials may be manually renewed in the library, by telephone or via the Clevnet catalog.
