    ELLISON DIE CUTTER:

    1. The Library is pleased to make our Ellison die cutter machine and dies available to our community educators.

      There is a $3.00 per use charge to help defray the cost of cutting pads, purchasing new dies and replacing worn dies. Library staff will record of payment through the cash register.

      Users must supply their own paper. We also request only 2 sheets are cut at a time. More than 2, especially with a worn pad, will result in a poor cut and prematurely dull a die.

      For security reasons, we ask that users leave any bags, cases or large purses on the Eaton Library office counter while in the office areas of the library.

    Cost for Damaged or Missing Materials - Revised:

    When a patron has lost an item and returns it undamaged within one year, the library can refund the patron the cost of the item if the patron has paid for it. When a patron returns the item after one year, the patron will not be refunded. Any other existing fees on the account will be deducted from the amount due before patron will be reimbursed. Amounts to be reimbursed under $10.00 will be reimbursed by the branch library. Amounts of $10.00 or more will be reimbursed by check and mailed to the address on the patron's account.
