Revolving credits come back to you once your borrowed items are returned and processed by a Library staff member.

Dumping your returned items without a staff member present makes you responsible for any missing items.
A “hoarder” is someone who doesn’t return their borrowed items to the Library within 1 month of borrowing. If you’re a hoarder, then you won’t be permitted to borrow any more items from the Library, until all the late items are returned. Items may also be considered stolen, and you will be charged for replacement value! Please share the love, and share our wardrobe so we can all experience more beautiful fashion!
We understand clothes are for living, working and playing in. Sometimes clothes break or get damaged, and that’s okay!

Members will not be charged for damages, but cash and clothes donations to our non-profit Library are always appreciated. Items that are not returned are considered “lost” and will cost the member a lost fee (read more below).
