The Library has removed late fees on overdue books

As of September 4, the MacOdrum Library has removed late fees on overdue books.

So what can you expect to see this year? Well, we’ll still be sending out notifications for any past due material, and certainly, we’d love for you to return things on time, but we won’t be charging for those few days where you’ve forgotten to bring them in.

Fines will still be charged on overdue reserve materials and recalled items as well as for replacement charges for lost or damaged material. We would also like to encourage people to continue to renew any materials they do have booked out past the due date and to encourage returns to come in one time.

For anyone who still has fines related to outstanding material prior to September 4, we encourage you to come see us to produce a plan to finalize the pre-existing fines.
