Fines and Fees

Overdue fines:

  • Fines for materials returned or renewed late are 25 cents per item per day up to a maximum of $5 per item.

  • Borrowing privileges are suspended when you have overdue items, billed items, or fines totaling $20 or more. 

Charges for lost or damaged items:

  • Charges for lost or damaged items include the replacement cost of the item and an additional $5 processing fee.
  • Purchasing a replacement item to eliminate the lost/damage fee is not acceptable due to edition, cataloging and collection development issues.

The Library has contracted with a collection agency to assist in recovering non-returned library materials and unpaid fines. Accounts sent to the collection agency will have a non-refundable $10 service charge added to the balance.
