This policy addresses issues regarding Library accounts of patrons who declare bankruptcy. The purpose of this policy is to make certain that Library policies are consistent with law.
For those listing the Library as creditor, Library accounts for named debtor(s) will be suspended. Attempts by the Library to collect the debt will be halted, and the account will remain suspended until the debt is discharged by Court order.
Existing fines and fees on Library cards of those listed on any bankruptcy notice will be waived after Discharge of Debtor notice is received.
Approved by the Library Board 10/21/14, reviewed as approved 2/19/19.
