  • These fines may be levied on a daily basis.
  • All overdue books returned after the grace period ends will incur a $.25 per day fine from the date the book was due.
  • A 4-day grace period allows the return of books without penalty for 4 days after the due date. On the fifth overdue day, the grace period is considered void and fines begin accruing from the date due.
  • ILL books receive 1 day of grace. Items received after the grace period ends will incur a $1.00 per day fine from when the book was due.  If your interlibrary loans accrue a combined fine total of $10 or more, all ILL borrowing privileges will be suspended until the fine has been paid in full and the library is informed of the payment.
  • Users may receive a refund for the replacement cost of a billed item if it is returned in satisfactory condition within 3 months.
