I am interested in other libraries policies on the following issues:
1). What do you do when a patron has library materials stolen from them
while signed out on their card?

Do you allow patrons to replace stolen materials with identical or
similar material or are they required to pay replacement costs. If
they pay a replacement cost is it the cost of the video and cataloguing?
(For example we charge $25.00 for entertainment videos, $25.00 for CD
replacements of a single CD.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.
