The card holder is responsible for all materials checked out on his or her library card. Parents are responsible for items checked out by their children. Report the loss or theft of a card promptly to avoid its unauthorized use. A card holder is responsible until loss is reported. Report address or phone number changes immediately by calling any branch.
