New Fines and Fees structure at the UCR Library
June 14, 2019

The UCR Library is pleased to announce a new Fines & Fees structure that will greatly benefit both the library and its patrons, effective July 1, 2019.

We are eliminating all processing fees ($10 per transaction) and campus late payment penalty charges ($25 per month), as the UCR Library now will handle all payments directly through its own secure online portal starting on July 1. By handling payments for fines and fees directly, the library has developed a quick and efficient process that takes your time into consideration.

In general, you will notice a reduction in short-term Reserve Fines and Recall Fines, which will benefit the vast majority of patrons.

Effective July 1, 2019, the library’s new Fine & Fee structure will be:

  • Reserve Fines: $10 per hour
  • Recall Fines: $2 per day
  • Replacement Fees: Due to an increase in the average cost of books and collection materials, this fee will increase from $75 to $100 per item.

Additionally, the UCR Library is offering a Replacement Fees Amnesty Period from June 17 - 30, 2019.

Please log into your secure UCR Library account portal to see whether you have any outstanding balances due.
