Overdue Fines

Items must be renewed or returned, in good condition, by the due date. After a 14-day grace period, you will be fined $5 per item. If an item is not returned within 42 days, you will be charged a replacement fee plus $10 for processing. We will waive the replacement charge when materials are returned.

Fines for overdue Course Reserves are 25 cents per hour for hourly items, and $1 per day for three- and seven-day items. If material is not returned, you will be charged the fine and replacement costs.
