Loan Policies and Fees

The Huntington Beach Library is now fines free. We do not charge late fees for items returned past their due date.

After 30 days overdue, an item will be assumed lost. Patrons will be blocked from checking out items until all lost items are returned or paid for. The fee for the item is the price for the cost of a new replacement through our vendor plus a $5 reprocessing fee. 

Other Library Fees

The library will not accept a book a patron purchases as replacement for lost books. Books purchased for the library collection are processed off-site. If a patron borrows a book from the library collection and the book is lost, the library will replace the book and charge the patron the catalog fee for the book and a processing fee.
