Fines (Taken from Circulation Policy of the Library)

If you see a fine on a patron's account, make them aware of it. Many times borrowers do not know they have a fine. We encourage patrons to pay the fines as soon as they can.

If a library fine is not paid by the end of the semester, fines will be charged against the student's regular school bill. Overdue notices are sent as soon as material is overdue; failure to receive the notice does not excuse the borrower from responsibility. Overdue materials will eventually be considered lost and full replacement costs will be charged to the patron's account.

Books The overdue book fine is $0.25 per day, including Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays. Maximum fines reach $20.00 per item.

Media: Fines for audio visual materials also accrue at $0.25 per day, including Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays. Maximum fines reach $20.00 per item.

Reserves:  Fines for overdue reserve materials are $0.50 per hour, including hours the library is closed. Maximum fine for reserve items is $20.00 per item.

E-Z Borrow books:  Fines for unreturned EZ Borrow books are $2.00 per day, with a maximum fine of $80.00 per item payable to Eastern University.
