TO: MAYOR WYTHE AND CITY COUNCIL
FROM: LIBRARY ADVISORY BOARD
THRU: RENEE KRAUSE, CMC, DEPUTY CITY CLERK I
DATE: MAY 14, 2014
SUBJECT: AMEND THE CIRCULATION POLICY TO EXTEND THE CHECK OUT PERIOD AND REDUCE THE DAILY OVER DUE FINES ON MUSIC CD’S
Library Staff requested amending the circulation policy covering Music CD’s. In the past the music collection was minimal and very popular so the policy was established to have a shorter checkout period to ensure the patrons would be able to access the collection. Since that time with the advent of other sources of music and at the request of staff and suggestions from patrons it is recommended to extend the checkout time to 14 days with the ability to renew and reduce the fine to $0.15 per day for each day that the item is late.
The Board discussed and motioned to approve the change to the Circulation Policy at the regular meeting on May 6, 2014. Following is an excerpt of the minutes of that meeting:
A. Recommendation to Change the Circulation Policy Adding Music CD’s and Defining Overdue Fees
