All loans from other institutions, whether ordered through BorrowDirect, E-ZBorrow or Interlibrary Loan are subject to fines and fees if returned late:

  • Late fees:  $1 per day to a maximum of $25 (non-refundable)
  • Lost fine:  $125 applied at 28 days overdue (removed if loan returned before the lender sends a lost item invoice)
  • Lost item processing fee: $10 (non-refundable)

At 28 days overdue the library system will charge your account $160 ($125 + $25 + $10)  If the item is returned promptly the fine will be reduced to $35 (lost and processing fees).

Returning your loans on time ensures that we maintain good relations with our lending partners.
