If materials are returned after their due date, overdue fines must be paid. You may continue to check out items if your total fines are less than $10.00. Fines are not assessed until you return or renew overdue material. Library cards are blocked when accumulated fines reach $10.00, or when an item is billed for being assumed lost. There are three possible ways to clear a block due to a lost item: return the item, pay the replacement cost, or speak with a library staff member about the possibility of replacing an item.

Paying Fines Online: Some fines can be paid online by logging into your account with your library card. After you login, click on your name in the upper right corner of the screen to access your account information, and then choose Fines/Fees from the options on the left.
