Audiovisual Equipment

 The library rents audiovisual equipment on a per day basis. Audiovisual equipment may be reserved over the phone or at the Circulation Desk.

Renewals
 Items may be renewed 25 times unless there is a patron request (hold) on them. A library card should be presented to renew materials at the library. If the physical library card is not immediately available, a patron may verify their identity in another manner. Items may be renewed over the phone by calling the Circulation Desk at 307-682-3223 or Wright Branch at 307-464-0500. The patron's library card number should be given in order to verify the caller's identity. Items may also be renewed with your library card and PIN number in the ‘My Account‘ area of the WYLDCAT Online Catalog.

Notices
The library sends out notices for items on hold and overdue items in both paper and electronic format. We can also send out reminders of approaching due dates for items checked out, by email only. Update your account information to include your email address if you would like to receive these notices.

Fines and Fees
Overdue Fines
A $0.60 overdue fine per item is charged on the sixth day library materials are overdue. Thereafter, $0.10 per day / per item accrues, up to a maximum of $3 / per item. Daily overdue fines on audiovisual equipment begin accruing on the first day equipment is overdue, amounts vary on each piece of equipment but are usually double the original rental cost.

If the patron fails to return the materials after receipt of a lost notice sent within 21 days after the materials are due, the account will be forwarded to a collection agency. 

Suspension of Privileges
Borrowing privileges are suspended if overdue fines reach $5 or replacement/processing fees for a lost or damaged item have not been paid.
