Responsibility of Library Usage

The Adam Cardinal Maida Alumni Library has collected and maintained materials for over 100 years.  Many materials are irreplaceable. To ensure that materials are suitable for enjoyment in years to come, please treat each item with care.

Overdue, Lost, and Damaged Materials

If you fail to renew the item, on the 29th day, overdue fees are .25 cents per item per day except for audio-visual materials, which are $1.00 per day per item. The book return box is always available for materials that must be returned when the Library is closed. The maximum penalty per returned item is $50.00 per item. In the event that the item is lost or destroyed, the maximum charge would be replacement cost (including shipping and handling) plus a processing fee of $25.00.

Failure to return Library materials or pay Library fines may incur the loss of Library privileges, withholding of report cards, academic transcripts, and/or other academic penalties.


Eligibility for Library Usage

Students, faculty and staff of the Orchard Lake Schools may fill out a Library form upon showing a current school identification card. The I.D. card will serve as a Library card, and may be used with a current driver’s license at many of the Detroit Area Library Network (DALNET) libraries, as well as Sacred Heart Major Seminary’s Szoka Library.

Students visiting the Library from a consortium school need only show their current home campus I.D. and driver’s license to check out books here. The Library will provide cards at the circulation desk for Orchard Lake Village residents, alumni and trustees. Other friends of the Library are asked to give a $30.00 donation in support of the Library in return for their Library cards.

Please Note: For your own protection. never loan your Library card to another person. Check books out only for yourself, not for friends or relatives!
