Overdue fines are charged hourly or daily depending on the loan length attached to the item. Overdue fines are charged in 25 cent, $1 or $5 increments depending on the demand and/or value attached to the item.

Users will receive email notices from the Library letting them know that an item is coming up due and if an item is past due. Once overdue fines reach a total of $15, your borrowing privileges will be suspended until you pay down your fines. For all Library users, if an item is past due for an extended period of time it will automatically be considered lost and a replacement fee will be charged, along with a $15 processing fee. These charges will be combined with any existing overdue fines. A replacement fee can also be charged in cases where an item is brought back in an unsatisfactory condition (e.g. damaged or broken). A replacement fee may be waived if you bring the item back in suitable condition.

Please note that, while faculty and staff do not incur overdue fines, they do incur replacement fees.
