First Peoples Development Inc. (FPDI) lends Cultural Resource Bins to our funded Daycare Centres hereinafter referred to as "Borrower". The lending service is available to all Daycare Centres funded through our program.
All Borrowers must fill out and sign a registration form to obtain borrowing privileges. The form can be returned to FPDI Daycare Coordinator or FPDI Administrative Assistant.
Resource materials and/or books in FPDI's collection are lent for a three week period. Each Borrower will be responsible for paying late fees of a dollar a day and replacement costs for lost or damaged materials. Borrowers with outstanding fees will lost resource centre privileges until all fines are paid and/or over due material is returned.
Daycare Centres can borrow one resource bin at a time. (Subjected to change once resouce inventory increases).
Renewals and Fines:
Resource bins can be renewed for an additional one week period, provided the Borrower makes arrangements with FPDI, prior to due date of the items and as long as there are no holds for the bin(s).
A fine of one dollar a day to a maxium of ten dollars will be charged for bins returned late. Borrowers will be charged for the replacement value of all items in the bin once it is three weeks overdue. Borrowers will be responsible for paying the replacement values plus an administrative fee of ten dollars for lost, stolen or damaged items beyond normal use of wear-and-tear.
Borrowing by Mail:
FPDI will cover the costs for delivering material to registered Borrowers. The Borrower is responsible to return resource materials to FPDI, at the Borrowers cost, using a "door-to-door" shipping service.
