Library materials may be renewed if there are no other holds on them. Most items may be renewed only for two additional loan periods. Many items will now automatically renew and patrons will be notified through email. Items may be renewed online, in person, or by phone at 704-664-2927.

As a courtesy, the library notifies patrons of overdue materials by email or by phone. As of July 1, 2020, the Library is Fine Free. Prior to July 1, 2020, the maximum fine incurred on each overdue item is $5. Accounts may be paid online, by mailed checks payable to the Town of Mooresville, or in person at our self-check kiosks.

Materials that are overdue for 30 days are classified as "Lost" and the full replacement price plus a $4 surcharge is added to the patron’s library account. "Lost" items may be returned if they are in usable condition and returned within one year of the item's due date. Once payment is received for a “lost” item, that item becomes the property of the cardholder and cannot be returned for a refund.

Our goal is to encourage the return of Library materials so others may use them. Library staff will work with patrons to settle past dues accounts so they may continue to borrow materials from the Library.
