Fines will be charged to students and affiliated borrowers for overdue material. The library is not obligated to notify a patron of overdue material. Overdue books will accrue at a rate of 5 cents per day. Patrons with more than $5.00 in fines will be restricted from borrowing material until the fine is resolved.

At the end of each semester the library will report students to the College’s Registrar who have outstanding unpaid fines and/or books that are overdue and have not been returned. The Registrar will withhold diplomas and transcripts until said fines are paid in full and/or overdue book(s) are returned or appropriate replacement payments have been made to the library. Once these conditions have been met then the library will inform the Registrar to release the student’s diploma and transcript.

Borrowers will be charged a lost item fee for lost or stolen library materials. Borrowers have the option of providing a presentable replacement copy with the same International Standard Book Number (ISBN) or paying the cost of the replacement copy. If a current replacement cost cannot be determined then a flat rate of $50.00 will be charged.
