One of the missions of the QC Public Library is to provide quality resources so that every user becomes lifelong readers, learners, and effective and responsible users of information. To meet this mission, it is important for library materials to be in good condition and to be returned on time by the borrowers. Library budget for new books is approved on a yearly basis and it is not possible to replace all of the lost or damaged materials at once. There are instances that the items that are lost or damaged are the very materials that are frequently borrowed or read and are mostly very important for research. All borrowers, including library staff, are included in this Overdue, Lost and Damaged Library Materials Policy. The Borrower of the book is responsible for the safe and timely return of library material. Notification of overdue or lost material is a service provided by the library. Failure to receive a notice does not free the borrower of responsibilities.
