Returned Check Policies

Here are the results of a quick poll taken in January of 2009 on policies in Georgia public libraries relating to checks that are returned for insufficient funds:

• Some libraries charge $25 or $30 for a returned check, while others do not charge a fee imposed by the library above bank fees.

• Most or all of the libraries who charge fees have it in their policy manual, either printed or online, and some documentation of library procedures in different scenarios.
