Yes, all fines must be paid in the library at the Circulation and Reserves Desk. Currently, we do not have a system for receiving overdue fines online.

Overdue fines are as follows:

  • Regular 3-week checkout books are 25 cents per item per day
  • 3-hour reserve items are 50 cents per item per hour
  • Other reserve items are 50 cents per item per day

When a book is not returned by the time it is 30 days overdue, a bill for the replacement price will be mailed to the borrower. If the book is returned, the replacement price will be dropped and only the overdue fee will be charged to the borrower.

Borrowing, privileges, registration, and transcripts will be withheld pending payment of library charges.
