Fishing poles can only be checked out on ADULT cards.
Each adult card can check out up to 4 poles simultaneously.
Adults must sign liability form before they receive the poles. They also need to fill out the liability form for any spouse/dependents that will be using the poles. They cannot check out poles for use by anyone else besides their spouse or their dependents.
The signed Liability forms must be placed back in their folder once the patron has signed.
Poles can check out for 3 days at a time. They must be returned to a library staff member while the library is open. They cannot be left outside the library or at the book drop.
Poles accumulate fines of $1/day per day late – not to exceed $35.00 which is the cost of the pole. Patrons may be charged for damage to the fishing poles and equipment.
Poles can be renewed up to 2 times, like any other item. They are also hold-able.
When the poles are returned the borrowing patron MUST answer the fishing survey located on the library clip board so that we can collect stats for the State.
Staff should check that all equipment is in good condition when returned and ask patrons about any damage and charge them accordingly.
Poles are stored in the Janitorial closet. They are all marked with identifying stickers and barcodes to be used when checking in/out. The key marked ‘storage shed’ will work on the Janitor’s closet to get the poles. The sinkers and bobbers are in the top drawer to the left of ROPL-CIRC-2
Report any significant damage to fishing equipment to the Library Director.
