Materials Recovery Program

The Mukwonago Community Library has established a materials recovery program to encourage library patrons to return books and other materials on time.

What happens when items are due:

7 DAYS PAST DUE

The library sends you an overdue notice.

14 DAYS PAST DUE

The library sends you an overdue notice.

28 DAYS PAST DUE

The library sends you a third overdue notice that includes fines and replacement charges with processing fees.

45 DAYS PAST DUE

Items are sent to the lost status and the patron’s account is billed with the replacement cost of the items.

60 DAYS PAST DUE

Accounts will be sent to Unique Management Services. A service charge of $20.00 will be added to your account. Unique Management Services will contact you to request the return of the overdue materials and payment of all outstanding charges.

Over the next 120 days the collection agency will make multiple attempts to contact you. If you do not return the overdue materials and complete or establish a payment plan, your account will proceed to the next stage listed below.

180 DAYS PAST DUE

Unique Management Services reports your overdue account to a credit reporting agency which may affect your credit rating for up to seven years.

For more information on the Materials Recovery Program, please call 262-363-6411 or visit the library.

Thank you for helping us ensure that everyone has access to materials in the Mukwonago Community Library collection.
