  • 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.

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.
