WSBA Lending Library Usage Standards

The WSBA Lending Library (Library) is a service to members offering the short-term loan of items on topics related to practice management, wellness, and career development.

The following usage standards apply to all members using the Library.

What Happens If I Do Not Return an Item on Time?

You may be charged a late fee for each day that an overdue item is not returned. Fines begin to accrue on the seventh (7th) day after an item is due as follows:





Books, Deskbooks, Practice Manuals

25 cents



You will not be able to check out items if you have any outstanding fines. Outstanding fines must be paid in full to borrow any additional items. To see if you have outstanding fines or to make payment, email us at pma@wsba.org.

How Can I Pay My Fine? 

You will receive an invoice for all fines. There are three ways to pay a fine:

  1. Credit Card. To arrange payment by credit card, please call us at 206-733-5914. Please note that our service provider will charge you a separate, non-refundable transaction fee of 2.5% on all bank card transactions. There is no transaction fee if you mail in a check.
