I returned my books, DVDs or CDs but they are still not checked back into my account. Are they lost?

According to the Center for Disease Control, after 24 hours infectious agents including COVID-19 would not remain on materials (Library Journal: IMLS, CDC: On Staff Safety, Handling Paper In COVID-19 Pandemic). Jacksonville Public Library is exceeding those recommendations by quarantining returned items for at least 72 hours.

If it has been three business days or less since you returned your materials, it is most likely that they are still in quarantine. If it becomes significantly longer, please call (904) 255-BOOK (2665) to inquire about your returned items.

Please note that no overdue fines will be applied for materials returned in 2020.
