A full set of policies is available for viewing in the library. These policies have been decided on and approved by the Frank B. Koller Memorial Library Board.
The purpose of this policy at the library is to ensure a safe, orderly, and comfortable atmosphere in which all library patrons can effectively use the library. Staff and patrons should be mindful of the effects of their behavior on others using the library's facilities. From time to time, the Library Board may adopt additional policies under public behavior as an incidence arises.
Each cardholder is allowed up to seventeen (17) items per card at any time, with a maximum of five (5) videotapes and/or DVDs.

Most materials are available to be renewed for 3 additional weeks. New fiction titles, videotapes, DVDs and books on a reserve list for other patrons cannot be renewed. Renewals may be made in person, by phone or through the online Merlin catalog.
Fines for overdue materials will be 5¢ per day for each day the library is open. Fines on new adult fiction books will be 25¢ per day. Patrons will be charged the full replacement fee for any items lost or damaged beyond repair.
