Are there any Overdue fines?

Military libraries do not charge Overdue fines. You are signing out government property; the expectation is that you will use it respectfully and return it in a timely manner.

What happens when I lose or damage a Library book or other property?

The sponsor is responsible for all items checked out on his or her account. Per AFI 34-150, he or she must purchase a NEW copy of the exact same item to replace the damaged or lost one.  Hardback books must be replaced with hardback copies.  Items may be shipped directly to the Library; email a copy of the purchase order to eglinlibrary@gmail.com to have your account updated.  If you have trouble finding the exact replacement contact the Library staff for alternatives, 882-9308.

I am going TDY and need to keep things longer.

If you are going TDY, please let us know when you check out.  We will give you a special Due Date based on your trip time frame.  Deployments are usually too long for this service, but ask us and we’ll try to assist you.
