Lost An Item?

It happens, we understand! If an item that you've borrowed from TBPL is lost please come in to let us know. There are several options available and we want to work with you to ensure a solution is reached and that you feel comfortable to continue using the library. Common options include paying the cost of the lost item, providing a replacement copy of the item, or chatting with a Community Hub Librarian about other options.
