Blu-ray Holds

The following libraries are now allowing holds on their Blu-Ray titles: Attleboro, Dartmouth, Dighton, East Bridgewater, Fall River, New Bedford (all locations), Norton, Rehoboth, Westport. So if you see one of your patrons on hold for a blu-ray that you don't own it doesn't mean they won't get it - although it will probably be a long wait.

Credit Card Payment Limits

Patrons must pay fines totalling at least 50 cents in order to use the credit card option in Enterprise. If a patron tries to pay fines totalling less than 50 cents they will receive this message: "Sorry, our library requires a minimum payment of at least $1 in order to pay fees electronically. Please select additional fees that you want to pay until the payment amount meets this minimum, then try again. If you have no additional fees to select, then you may need to pay these fees at the library." NOTE - we charge a 50 cent processing fee. This means the minimum payment would be a 50 cent fine and 50 cent processing fee.
