Courtesy notices are mailed when materials are 10 days past due. The library card holder is responsible for extended use fees regardless of whether or not a notice is received.

Lost Materials


  • Items are considered lost if they are 20 days overdue.
  • If you lose an item, you will be charged a $5 processing fee in addition to the cost of the material.

Collection Agency


In order to ensure the prompt return of library materials, Orange Public Library has retained the services of Collection Bureau of America. The library has the authority to submit outstanding accounts to a collection agency. The collection agency will impose additional charges to submitted accounts.
