Lost and Damaged Materials

Changes to Library services during the COVID-19 lockdown.

Lost Materials / Replacement Charges

Once a book is overdue for 60 days replacement charges will be calculated and added to your account. Please report lost materials to the Library Services Desk promptly. The earlier you report an item as lost, the lower your fine. 

When the actual cost of the item is not available the standard charge for a lost book is $75.00 plus a $20.00 processing fee.

Damaged Materials

With the exception of regular wear and tear, damaged library material should be reported to the Library Services Desk prior to checkout. The material will be stamped indicating that the damage has been noted before you borrowed it.

If an item is returned in damaged condition, you will be charged either the cost of repairs, actual cost of replacement, or a standard charge of $75.00 plus a $20.00 processing fee.
