Items on Hold
Failure to pick up or cancel material that you have placed on hold will result in a $1.00 fine per item.

eReader Return^
eReaders must be returned inside the location at which they were checked out. A $6.00 fee will be charged for eReaders returned at a different location or placed in a dropbox.

Returns
Checked-out items (except MediaBank DVDs) may be returned to any EVPL location. MediaBank DVDs must be returned to the MediaBank dispenser in Central Library's Popular Materials Center.

Renewals
In most cases, two renewals are allowed unless there is a hold on the item. Walk-in customers may have items renewed at the Circulation Desk, with or without having the materials in hand. Customers may also renew items on our web page; by calling (812) 428-8249 Monday-Friday, 8 am-5 pm (except holidays); or by calling their branch library.

*Number of Items
The maximum number of items that a customer may borrow at one time is based upon their card type (new borrower, resident, out-of-county student). If you have questions about the limits associated with your card, please check at the desk.
