New September 1st, Registration Recovery Program
Commencing September 1st, 2013 there will be a one-time registration recovery of $10.00 for new borrowers to help offset increasing operating costs. Please have cash ready at the time of registration.
There will continue to be no charges or fees to borrow an instrument.
- A parent or guardian must sign the loan agreement for a borrower under 16 years of age.
- Instruments are loaned for a four-week period. (Drum kits up to three months and some larger keyboards up to six months). Extensions may be arranged upon return by due date, if not reserved for another borrower (instrument must be returned to the library on the due date in order to request an extension).
- A $1.00 per day fine will be applied to late returns. [max $30]. Cash only please. Borrowers will not be able to take out a new loan until all fees are cleared up. If you know in advance that you will be late or will have transportation issues with your instrument, contact us immediately so we can make arrangements.
- Certain ‘special’ instruments are only available for loan to more experienced musicians who are borrowers in good standing, i.e. those who have previously borrowed from the general M.I.L.L. inventory, returned on time, in good condition.
- Any instrument currently out on loan may be reserved for loan upon its return to the library. A reserved instrument will be held for three working days from notification of availability.
- If an instrument is damaged or stolen while on loan, please contact the librarian immediately so we can assess the situation. The majority of issues can usually be easily remedied at the library and seldom result in a cost to the borrower unless the damage was intentiona lor due to negligence by the borrower.
