Fines and Lost Book Fees

Most borrowers are subject to fines for the late return of Library books and other materials. For non-reserve items, these fines are $1.25 per day.

Unpaid fines of $10 or more will result in the suspension of borrowing privileges for most patrons. Library fines can be paid at the Circulation Desk by credit card, check or cash.

If a book is long overdue or damaged, a standard processing fee of $25.00 plus a minimum replacement fee will be applied to your account. The Library reserves the right to adjust this replacement fee upward if it does not cover the cost of the replacement. In some libraries you may replace the lost item with a new book of the same edition, and only the $25 processing fee will be charged. Please consult with a circulation supervisor concerning lost items.

The Circulation Department closes fifteen minutes before the Library closes.
