Show Low Public Library Current Service Offerings
The library will be opening June 1st!
We have been receiving several inquiries from patrons asking for clarity on their checked out items. As a reminder you can always visit your online account to see the status of your library card and items. Contact the library if you are unsure how to do this (info is also located below).
The library has returned to regular checkout times and due dates. Overdue notices have also started going out again via email (if one is listed on your account) or mail. As a reminder our library does not charge overdue fines on our own items. This doesn't apply to items that were checked out here that belong to other libraries (each library has it's own policies and procedures). If you have had an item checked out for a while and have not renewed it you will want to check your online account or contact the library.
Our current library policy is that the item becomes "ASSUMED LOST" and the patron is charged for the item 90 days after the due date. If the account is not settled or the items are not returned after that time the patron is sent to a collection agency. If you have any questions or need to renew your items you can do so online through your online account or call the library ASAP.
Our two library bookdrops are open 365 days a year, 24 hours a day if you need to return your items and the library is closed. On occasion our drive through bookdrop is not accessible due to weather.
The library has also recently starting using a text notification system for overdue items as opposed to email, if you are interested in signing up for this service please contact us!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
