Refunds are not given for Lost & Paid materials. If you find the lost item that you have already paid for, you may keep it.

Materials Recovery System

Accounts with an unpaid balance of $25.00 or more are submitted to Unique Management Service. They will:

  • Contact delinquent account holders until balances are paid or arrangements are made with the library for repayment.
  • Report overdue accounts to national credit reporting agencies when accounts are 90 days overdue.

To check the status of your account, check the library web site at http://innovative.gailborden.info/patroninfo  and have your library card available.

To make payment arrangements, visit the library or call 847-429-4690.  Please have your library card with you.
