Borrowers receive an-email reminder two days before the due date.
There is a four day grace period on non-reserve items that circulate outside of the library. On the fifth day overdue a $1 fine will be applied to the borrower's library account. Fines will accrue at a rate of $.20 a day each day after.
Borrowers with overdue items receive 3 overdue reminder notices over 3 weeks.
At 30 days, borrowers receive a warning that the replacement cost of their books will be applied to their tuition, which may affect receiving grades and obtaining transcripts.
Notices are sent as a courtesy. Borrowers who do not receive a bill are still responsible for any fines accrued on overdue books.
Paying for Fines and Lost Books
Borrowers may pay fines and replacement costs for lost books at the Circulation Desk. The Gumberg Library accepts cash and checks as forms of payment.
