What happens if someone doesn’t return their items?

If items are not returned by their due date, they will be considered overdue. If items are overdue by 21 days, patrons will be charged for the replacement cost of the item plus a processing fee. Our fine-free policy applies only to overdue items. Fees for damaged or lost items will still be charged to cardholder accounts.
