Lost and Found Policy

As a public place, the Mercer County Public Library accepts no responsibility for personal items left on library property. When items are discovered or turned in, and they contain legible identification, Library staff will make a reasonable effort to notify the owner, by telephone or postcard if a telephone number or address is readily ascertainable.

Any item left in the library, not to include pens, pencils, and items of incidental value, will be dated and kept at the circulation desk for a period of two (2) weeks. After that time, items will be appropriately disposed of: books will be placed in the library book sale, money will be recorded as a gift to the library, other usable items will be donated to the Christian Life Center, and non-usable items will be thrown away.

This policy was approved by the MCPL Board of Trustees on February 13, 2006
