If you return an item on a weekend or later in the day, you may need to wait until the next business day to see the item checked in and cleared from your account. You may also receive an overdue notice, depending on timing. You may disregard this notice if the item was returned. For additional assistance, please contact the SCL branch where you returned the item so staff can search for it.
Scott County Library no longer charges daily overdue late fines (as of March 2022), but we do charge for unreturned or damaged items. An item is marked as unreturned in our system 21 days after its due date.
We've implemented system blocks to help remind customers to return items. If your account has accrued a balance greater than $25.00 due to old fines or unreturned items, you will be unable to check out additional physical items. Customers with blocked accounts can still access eBooks, use WiFi, reserve meeting rooms, use library computers, print, copy, and use other in-library services.
First, call or email your library so we can mark the item as "lost" in our system. You may pay with cash or check in person during staffed hours. Outside of staffed hours, you can for the item by credit card anytime through our Catalog & My Account page or our mobile app (available on both iOS and Android).
To update contact information on your account, call any Scott County Library location.
There are several different ways to renew your items:
1. Let our system do it for you. Our system will attempt to renew an item for you if no one else has a hold on it. When an item is coming due, an attempt will be made to renew it automatically for another 3 weeks. You will receive an email reminder 3 days before an item’s due date informing whether materials have been automatically renewed or need to be returned. Items will renew up to 5 times.
2. You can manually renew items, and manage your whole account, through our Catalog & My Account site. Sign in with your library card and PIN. You can renew your checked out items from My Account.
3. Renewing is easier than ever with the Scott Lib (MN) mobile app. Sign in your library card and PIN to search our catalog for materials, place holds, check your account balance, pay fines, and more.
