Hourly fines are assessed for whole or partial hours since the due time. In other words, if a laptop is returned between one and 60 minutes late, a $1 fine will be charged; a laptop returned between 61 and 120 minutes (two hours) late will incur a $2 fine, etc. Similarly, daily fines are assessed for whole or partial days. A book with $0.25/day fine rate will incur a fine of 25¢ if returned on the day after it was due.
The Library assesses fines and fees to ensure that everyone has equal access to materials and equipment. A failure to return items by the stamped due date (books) or by the verbally stated time (laptops & equipment) will result in overdue fines. When items are overdue for a long time, they may be declared lost and replacement and processing fees will be assessed in addition to overdue fines. Damaged items are assessed on case-by-case basis.
Balances under $10.00

Balances $10.00 and above
Library accounts with balances $10.00 and over are not in good standing and borrowing privileges are blocked until a payment is received.
