Bankruptcies

The Library will discharge a patron's debt that has been lawfully discharged in bankruptcy.

  1. Before the Library will discharge a patron's debt, the patron must provide a copy of a valid court order discharging the patron's debt.
  2. Library fines for overdue materials (this does not include debt for damaged or lost materials) may not be discharged in bankruptcy and will remain the responsibility of the patron.
  3. If a patron's borrowing privileges are currently suspended pursuant to section 3.0 of the Library's Loan Policy, the patron may request reinstatement based on a lawful court order discharging the patron's dischargeable library debt, provided the patron has returned all overdue materials that have an active item record and paid all non-dischargeable and other current debt due to the Library.
  4. If the patron in bankruptcy is responsible for a juvenile account, the same policies apply.
