Fines

Overdue Fines

Library staff ordinarily send overdue notices as a courtesy; however, failure on the borrower's part to receive such a notice is not grounds for nonpayment of a fine. Any outstanding fines at the end of the semester will be forwarded to the Controller's Office for collection, and an additional $5 service charge will be added to the fine.
