Charges for Overdue and Lost Long-term Loan Items
There is no grace period for any items checked out from the Libraries.
The overdue charge for recalled items is $2.00 per day or partial day per item accruing to a maximum of $20.00 per item.
When a long-term loan item becomes 30 days overdue, it will be declared lost, and the borrower will be issued a lost item billing (Notice of Fine or Fee) that includes the cost of the item, a $20.00 processing fee, and when applicable, a $20.00 recall fine. Follow-up billings for any unpaid charges are issued weekly with the Statement of Fines and Fees notice.
From 31-60 days overdue, if the item is returned in good condition, all charges for that item (except a recall fine) will be forgiven.
After 60 days overdue, if the item is returned in good condition, ONLY the lost item charge is removed.
To avoid overdue recall charges, promptly respond to recall notices.
To avoid lost item billings, promptly renew or return items.
