At Phoenix Public LIbrary our video loan period is 5 titles for 7 days.
Our fines were once 25 cents per day per title overdue but it is now 10
cents to keep all of our fine fees uniform.

> Greetings. As we prepare to open our new Media Center, we have been updating old policies and adding new ones. One of these is our circulation policy for videos, which includes a discussion of fines charged for overdue videos. Currently our videos circulate for 24 hours (this is a video collection whose priority is classroom use) and our fines in the past have been, we all agree, much too low to have any impact.
