Fines & Fees

We do not charge fines for overdue materials, but expect materials to be returned by the due date and in good condition. When materials are three weeks late, they are considered lost and the borrower is billed. Library privileges are suspended until the matter is resolved. Failure to respond to notices will result in collection action and holds on college records.

The fee for lost or damaged materials is the full replacement cost of the item plus a $20 processing fee. The processing fee applies to each item lost or damaged.
