Jasonville Public Library

DVD Policy

The Jasonville Public Library provides free use of DVD’s to the patrons as a privilege.  Any patron checking out DVD’s will be responsible for any damaged caused to the DVD through negligence or deliberate damage.  Patrons are responsible for notifying the Library if a DVD is not working properly.  All DVD’s will be checked for damage when checked out and again when returned.  If any damage is noted upon return, the patron will be responsible for said damage or replacement.


To check out DVD’s, a patron must:

-Be 18 years of age or older.  No children under the age of 18 will be allowed to check out DVD’s.

-Have a Library card and use the Library on a regular basis for at least six months.

-Be in good standing, having no fees due and no overdue Library books, videos, audio books, etc.


DVD’s checked out must be returned to the Library on the next operating day, or be subject to fines.  The return schedule for DVD’s is as follows:

          DVD’s checked out on Monday must be returned on Wednesday.

          DVD’s checked out on Wednesday must be returned on Saturday.

          DVD’s checked out on Saturday must be returned on Monday.

If the return date is a holiday in which the Library is closed, DVD’s are to be returned on the next operating day.


When a patron has used the Library for six months and has earned the right to check out a DVD, only one DVD can be checked out.  Once that DVD is returned on time, patrons can check out no more than two DVD’s at one time.


DVD’s cannot be renewed. 


The fines for overdue DVD’s is $1.00 per day, per DVD.  Fees must be paid and DVD’s must be returned before additional DVD’s can be checked out.


It is at the discretion of the Library Director to refuse a patron DVD privileges if Director deems a person is not responsible (past history of not returning materials on time, etc).


The Jasonville Public Library follows the recommended guidelines of the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) to determine that “R” rated movies are inappropriate for minors.  DVD sections will be organized by MPAA ratings.
