Libraries are essential pillars of our democracy: they make us better citizens
by providing free and equal access to information, resources, and ideas.
Libraries are also central pillars of our humanity: they offer the chance to
explore the lives of others, their varied perspectives, and unique sufferings.

We are committed to serving as a safe space for people to connect, learn, and
grow with and from one another.  Systemic racism, prejudice, and discrimination are counter to our mission and values, and we reject them in all their forms. We stand with library workers, with library users, and with members of the community we serve and support who have been mistreated, endangered, or threatened, simply for being who they are

Questions about Overdue notifications?

The normal routine was that OCPL sends the first notice after 3 days overdue, the second notice 10 days overdue and the 3 rd notice 30 days overdue. After 60 days overdue the items are then declared lost at which time they are charged the price of the item. Due to the 7 day quarantine OCPL is now going to add 7 days to each notice. Thus the notices will go out 10, 17 and 37 days past the due date. Items will still be declared lost after 60 days.
