All Alexandria Libraries will be closed on Monday, January 20 in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
Items may be renewed three times, with the exception of items on educator or student accounts. Customers may renew in person, by contacting a branch, calling the telephone accounts system or by accessing their account online. Items on hold for other customers cannot be renewed. Customers with blocked accounts are unable to renew items.
Items are due before 10am on the day following the due date. After that, a fine per item is charged for every day that is past the due date, with the exception of days the entire Library system is closed. Fines continue to accrue until the items are returned or until a maximum per-item fine is reached, whichever comes first. Renewals online may be made until 11:59 pm on the due date. Items received through a book drop when the library is closed will be marked as received on the last business day the library was open.
Since June 15, 2011, all accounts with delinquent fines and fees of $25 or more for 60 days are forwarded to Unique Management Services, Inc (“Unique”). A non-negotiable service fee of $10 is added to each delinquent account. Balances can be paid with cash, check, or credit card at any checkout desk or online with a credit card at My Account (link to library account). Balances must be paid in full to resume use of card/account.
