General Checkout Books

General checkout books (those available from the stacks on 3rd and 4th floors) will accrue a charge after they are 30 days late.  Once a book is 30 days past due, it is assumed lost and charged the overdue fine of $7.50. Additionally, a nonrefundable $10.00 processing fee AND the replacement cost of the book are charged to the patron’s account. If the book is returned after 30 days, the replacement cost is deducted and the total due is $17.50 per book ($7.50 fine plus $10.00 processing fee).
