Circulation Policies

All patrons wishing to borrow materials must apply for a library card.

An Attleboro Public Library card is valid at all SAILS public libraries, and all SAILS public library cards are valid at the Attleboro Public Library.

Any card holder can borrow any materials from the library without regard to age, except for museum passes.

Museum passes are available for reserve by any SAILS Adult card holder.

Due dates for all library materials are set by the computer.  All items are either stamped with the due date or a due date card is placed inside the item.

Fines of $.10 per day per item are assessed patrons for overdue items.  An item is considered overdue if returned anytime after the due date assigned by the computer.  Fines are not computed for days that the library is not open.

Patrons must bring items to be borrowed to the Circulation Desk for Checkout.  Patrons returning items must leave them at the Circulation Desk area designated for checking in items.

Patrons are responsible for the items borrowed on their card.  Patrons will be assessed for lost or damaged items in their possession.
