Fine and Fee Information


Overdue Materials

A checkout receipt is emailed at the time of checkout. Another courtesy email is sent out 4 days before the item is due. A full activity email of all items currently checked out and all current fines is automatically sent on the 2nd day of each month.

Once an item is overdue by 28 days, it is declared lost and a replacement fee is charged to the account. An email notification of the lost charge is sent to the user. 

Failure to pay fines/fees promptly will result in a block on borrowing privileges when the amount reaches $200. All fine/fee payments are made at the Circulation Desk. Patrons with outstanding obligations to the library may be referred to a collection agency.
