Lost Cards 

Patrons are asked to bring their library card with them to check out items or to use the public access computers. A fee of $1 is charged for replacement cards. 

Lost or Damaged Items 

Patrons are responsible for paying for all items lost or damaged. With approval of the Library Director, replacement of the item may be made with the same title or another suitable title. Parents are responsible for any overdue / damaged / lost items on their children's cards, as well as fines incurred.

Renewal and Holds 

Materials (except DVDs and new release books) may be renewed twice by phone or online from the library website catalog. To renew online, enter your 14-digit library barcode number (typed without spaces) and your PIN. Click on “My Account” and then “Renew My Materials.” Online renewals are blocked on accounts with large fines or more than four overdue items. Items on hold request by another patron may not be renewed. Holds for items currently checked out or at another OCPLC library may be placed online. Email notices for hold requests ready for pick-up are automatically sent out  from “ocplcinfo” if your email address is on file. Please note that the email is sent out before your requested item hits our shelves. You may wish to call before making a special trip to the library.
