Bellwood Materials Returned at the Bellwood Public Library

Patrons may use the following areas to return materials :

  • You may return books in the South book drop (24 hours).  Due to damage, we request that you do not return DVD's in the book drop. You may be charged $3.00 for items returned in the book drop.  Items returned before the library opens will be recorded as returned the previous workday.

  • Indoor book and audiovisual returns: All library materials can be returned here during our open hours. Please sort out audiovisual materials and place in the one designated return.

  • Circulation Desk: All items may also be returned to staff at the Circulation Desk.


Bellwood Materials Returned at Other Libraries

Bellwood Public Library materials may be returned to other public libraries who are reciprocal partners.  Items are considered returned on the date the materials are received at the reciprocating library. The patron, not the library, is responsible for the condition in which the items are received and for any items which are not delivered to the Bellwood Public Library.


Non-Bellwood Public Library Materials Returned at the Bellwood Public Library

Materials belonging to other libraries may be returned to the Bellwood Public Library for routing to the owning library if that library is a reciprocal partner. Fines for overdue items may be paid to the Bellwood Public Library if the owning library has agreed to such an arrangement.

The Bellwood Public Library does not accept any responsibility for the condition of the item, for failure of the item to reach its home destination, or for any additional fees assessed by the owning library.


Interlibrary Loan items Checked out at the Bellwood Public Libary

Patrons are responsible for any fees associated with damaged Inter-library loan items. You will be subject to the fees imposed by the owning library, usually the cost of the item plus a processing fee.
