What are the fines on overdue library materials?
If any library material is overdue, your borrowing privileges are suspended until all items are returned and the fines are paid.
In order to provide equitable service to all Library patrons, time limits on Library materials are strictly enforced. Fines on overdue material are 25 cents each day per item, up to a maximum of $20.00 per item. If the item is not returned and fines are not paid, you are charged for the cost of replacing the item plus a $5.00 processing fee. If the item is eventually returned or found, only the replacement cost is refunded or forgiven. No refunds are given after four months of receipt of payment. Fines or lost charges of $10.00 or more result in blocks on PSU student records, and/or other collection procedures for community patrons.
Overdue notices are sent as a courtesy to remind you of overdue material. Failure to receive notices does not waive fines. Please ask the Circulation Desk for assistance if you are concerned that you might have overdue items.
