Lost or Damaged Items

If you have an item that is truly lost (not just late) or damaged (ie. the dog ate it) please notify us so that we can work with you to either buy a replacement or get it properly cleared from your library account. We would prefer to know that an item is never coming back so that we can work on cleaning up our inventory and your account. This also helps us maintain good working relationships with the libraries that share with us.

Having items out on your account that are long gone hinders your access and keeps us wondering. Let us know right away so we can make arrangements with you
