Overdue Fine Calculations

  • fines are calculated from the due date to the date the book is checked back into the Leddy Library
  • the “due date” will always fall on a day the library is open
  • overdue fines are calculated for the days the library is open and closed
  • it is the responsibility of borrowers to keep an eye on their account

Lost or Damaged Items

Once an item is assigned a "lost" status due to non-return, a replacement charge of $90 plus a $20 overdue fine and a $20 processing fee will be added to the library user's patron record. If an item is returned with damage that warrants a replacement of the item, a replacement charge of $90 per item and a $20 processing fee will be added to the library user's record
