Beginning September 2, 2018 SAILS has implemented a policy of automatically renewing eligible Library materials three days before they are due. Items will not be renewed if someone else has placed a hold, the item has reached its renewal limit, your account is blocked due to excess fines or fees, or the item is not renewable for some other reason (i.e. ComCat and Interlibrary Loan). If an item CANNOT be renewed you will receive a courtesy due soon notice (via phone, email, SMS Text) before the materials are due. THANK YOU !
We do accept food for the Wrentham Food Pantry for overdue fees. However, The Board of Trustees has voted to limit the amount of food that can be used to pay overdue bills. You may bring in food up to a limit of $5. Food may not be used to cover the cost of lost materials. Remember that you can renew most items online. If you provide us with your email address you will get an automatic reminder three days before the items are due. Ask us if you need help. We would, of course, prefer that you return items promptly – postage and staff time are costly.
We have found that some people have not been able to borrow passes or attend programs because space has been filled, sometimes by patrons whose borrowing privileges have been blocked due to excessive fines.
In fairness to all, the Board of Trustees has adopted the following policy : Fiske Library refuses access to any library-sponsored programs and passes if a patron is blocked for outstanding fines or for fees resulting from loss of library materials.
(Computer blocks patrons with over $10 in overdue charges, more than 7 overdue items or unpaid bills resulting from lost materials). Effective March 1, 2011.
