Criss Library Fine Policy: Renewals, Returns, Fines

Can I renew my books?

Where do I return my books or Reserve/Media items?

How much are fines for late returns?

Books and Government Documents:

Group/Single Study Room Keys, Remote Controls, computer peripherals (mice, headphones, etc.):

Graduate Carrel Keys:

Laptops:

Media items (CDs, DVDs, videos and Playaways):

Media Equipment (Camcorders, Camcorder Accessories, Digital Cameras, Digital Audio Recorders, tripods):

Kindles:

Reserve items (2 or 4 hour checkout):

Reserve items (1, 3 or 7 day checkout):

Damaged items: Any item returned with damage will be assessed a fee.

Recalled items: A $4 recall fine, in addition to any other charges, is assessed if the item is not returned by the due date on the Recall notice.

All Library items:

If an item is overdue 6 months or more, the patron must reimburse the library for the cost of the item plus any fines and billing fees, even if the patron is able to return the item, as the item has been considered permanently lost and has been removed from the collection and/or reordered.

Do you notify me if my items are overdue?

As a courtesy the library sends out an electronic notification when an item is 7 days overdue and 14 days overdue. After an item is 28 days overdue, you will be mailed a bill for the replacement cost and processing fee. Failure to receive electronic notification does not excuse a patron from fines.

Will I still owe a fine if I return a billed or fined item?

Yes. When a billed item is returned, fines and billing fees, which will not exceed $15 per item, must be paid before Library privileges can be restored or registration holds can be lifted.

What if I pay for a lost item and then find it?

Generally, the library orders and replaces lost items within 30 days after they have been declared lost on a library user’s account.  You are eligible for a refund if you have returned the lost item within 30 days of the replacement billing date and the item has not been damaged.  After this time period, or if the item is determined to be damaged, you are not eligible for a refund.
