I use more than one Monarch member library. How will that work?

Whether or not fines are charged is determined by the lending library policies.  Any Monarch member library's juvenile material checked out at HPL will be Fine-Free and can be returned to any Monarch library for check-in.  Likewise, any HPL item checking out at another member's location will follow their lending policies.

However, there is a wrinkle with renewals.  If you check out at HPL but renew at another member library, the original checkout policies are nullified, and the renewing library's policies take over.  To avoid this situation, we recommend you renew at HPL or another Monarch member library with the same fines policy.
