  • As with all library materials, borrowers are responsible for the care of the item and any supplemental materials.
  • If any of the Library’s property is lost or damaged, borrowers agree to provide the cost of a repair or replacement. 
  • Patrons may request information on the replacement cost of items before checkout.
  • Some items are only available for checkout by patrons 16 years or older due to safety concerns.
  • A valid library card with outstanding fees of no more than $10 and no lost or billed items is required for checkout.
  • The Library reserves the right to limit future Library of Things circulation to patrons due to previous misuse or damage of Lincoln Library property and/or violation of the Library of Things Borrowing Policy.
