Borrowing Policies


We are now a circulating member of C/W-MARS (Central/West MA Regional Library System). C/W-MARS is a consortium of libraries that make their materials available to anyone who holds a C/W-MARS library card. We are now circulating our materials through their software. You therefore must have a C/W-MARS card to borrow materials from the Richards Memorial Library.


In general, books circulate for 21 days, movies for 7 days, and magazines for 7 days. One renewal is allowed for magazines and movies.


Fines are assessed on overdue materials. Book and magazine fines are ten cents per day, movies are $1.00 per day. After an item is 30 days overdue it will be assumed that the material has been lost and the replacement cost of the material will be charged to your account.


If you owe more than $10.00 you will not be able to check any materials out. Fines may be paid at any C/W-MARS library with cash, check or credit card (not all libraries accept credit cards) or you may pay online with a credit card.
