You are responsible for all material checked out on your library account. You will be fined if material is overdue.
After 21 days, you are billed a $100 replacement fee for each overdue item. Additionally, your library privileges are suspended until your bill is settled.
Interlibrary loan material
Replacement fees for interlibrary loan material are the same as general material (see above).
Recalled status is when another user requests the item you have checked out. You will receive notice of this. Fines of $2 a day begin accruing one day after the adjusted due date.
Course reserves and other hourly material
Fines of $10 for any portion of each hour overdue begin accruing after the due time.
Pay your fines
Fines are paid through a secured online portal.

All payments which are returned or canceled by your bank or financial institution will result in the reactivation of all associated fines and fees on your account.
Borrowing privileges will be suspended for cardholders with fees totaling $20 or more, or with balances outstanding for 30 days or more.
Appeal your bills
All appeals must be submitted online.
Appeal requests will only be considered for unpaid fines and fees. Appeal requests for previously paid fines and fees will not be considered and will be denied.
You are responsible for overdue materials even if you do not receive a notice.
You may be charged for materials returned in a damaged condition. The minimum charge for a damaged item is $15. If the item cannot be repaired, replacement fees will be assessed.
Lost or stolen material
