The Library charges $5 per hour overdue fines for digital media including laptops, iPads, and accessories. The Library charges $1 per hour for overdue reserve materials, overdue dry-erase marker kits, and $5 per hour for overdue adapters. It is the patron’s responsibility to note the Library's operating hours and the due date and time for any materials on their account. Though the Library system sends out automatic email notifications for items coming due, and items that are overdue, the onus is on the patron to adhere to due dates and times. If the Library is closed on the due date, the item should be returned before the due date in order to avoid fines. You will be notified via email when your item is coming due and when it is overdue. Replacement charges will be added to your account when the item is considered long overdue. Please contact the Library to see if you can still return these items to clear your account, otherwise you will be billed for the replacement costs. Once the library has ordered a replacement copy, the bill cannot be removed.
Electronic media cannot be returned in the book drop; all iPads/laptops/cameras/digital recorders must be checked in at the Desk. Failure to do so will result in replacement charges for the materials, as they can be significantly damaged and destroyed by the book drop.
Please note that items that are considered overdue (2-weeks for books, and 1-week for DVDs) will be subject to a $5.00 overdue fee. Extremely overdue (1-month for books, and 2-weeks for DVDs) will be subject to a $10.00 overdue fee, per item.
Replacement costs for damaged or lost items:
*This is the default price for replacement items. If the cost of the item exceeds this price, you will be charged the actual replacement cost plus the $20 processing fee.
