Returning Materials

The Haddon Heights Library has an outside bookdrop located directly in front of the building on Station Avenue. Please do not use this bookdrop to return audio books or DVDs. Doing so will likely damage the item.

Placing Holds

Patrons with a valid library card may place items on hold that are currently checked out or on order. There is no fee for this service and borrowers are notified by phone when items are ready for pickup.

Overdue Materials

Overdue fines are assessed if items are not returned or renewed by the due date. Be sure to check the due dates for items you have on loan. Due dates are listed on the receipt handed to you at check out or you can view them on your account online.

Overdue fines apply to each day materials are late. $0.50 is charged each day a DVD is late, with a maximum fine of $5.00. All other materials are $0.10 per day with a maximum of $3.00.

Lost or Damaged Items

It is your responsibility to maintain the condition of all borrowed materials. When an item is lost or damaged beyond repair, you will be asked to pay the replacement cost of the item. Interlibrary loan replacement or damage charges may vary depending on the lending library’s policy.
