Before we get started with your membership, please take this opportunity to read the agreement policy below. If you have any questions, don't be afraid to contact us. We will gladly provide further information.
COST OF MEMBERSHIP
$20 is the ideal amount in order to support Ourshelves, however, $10 monthly dues are available as well. If you cannot afford $2.50-$5.00 per week to borrow books, sliding-scale options are always available. Please contact us or visit the library for more information.
Monthly dues can be made in cash at the library or by credit card via PayPal.
By signing up for membership, you agree to a recurring monthly credit card fee of an agreed amount, or cash payment every 31 days from the start of your membership. Books must be returned before membership's end.
In order to assure we receive the books back, Ourshelves does ask for credit card information on file. We do our best to avoid charging credit cards for unreturned books. However, if you have neither contacted Ourshelves nor returned your book within two months, the full-cost of book will be charged.
LATE FEES & DAMAGES
There are no late fees for members who pay recurring fees. You may keep a book for as long as you would like. If there is significant damage to a book, though, we will have to ask for a damage fee of $3 used or $5 new book. If a book is damaged past the point where we can put it back on our shelf, then we will unfortunately have to charge you the cost of the book.
If you are paying membership dues by cash and have failed to pay for two consecutive months, then your membership will be cancelled and you will be charged the cost of book.
