What happens when an item is very overdue?


Depending on the type of item, after a set number of days, we consider the item lost and charge you the replacement cost of the item and a non-refundable $15 processing fee. The date you are charged is known as the billing date. There is a grace period before all charges become non-refundable. If the item is returned within the grace period, the replacement cost will be refunded and late fees will be assessed.


  Item considered "Lost" and account charged Replacement cost becomes nonrefundable
Books, Government Document, Media, Journal/Magazine, ASNMU Bike Share  50 days overdue 30 days after billing date
Equipment & Reserve Item 30 days overdue 10 days after billing date


If the item is returned after the replacement cost refund deadline, the item is considered a gift to the library. You may request a letter acknowledging your gift at the time you return the item. Fines and processing fees are non-refundable.

If you wish to appeal charges, you must do so by submitting a Billing and Fine Appeal form (link) within 15 days of the billing date. You will receive a response within 2 weeks.

The Lydia M. Olson Library reserves the right to suspend a patron’s borrowing privileges. Registration, diplomas, and transcripts will be held until all materials are returned and/or all fines are paid.
