There is NO GRACE PERIOD for overdue items.
Overdue fines continue to accrue on holidays and other days when the library is closed. Books that are returned to a book drop when the library is closed will be checked in, backdated to the last day when the library was open. Books are never due on a day that the library is closed.
All patrons who fail to respond to a recall notice, including faculty, must pay recall fines. Library privileges will be suspended until the recalled item is returned and the fine is paid.
Library privileges will be suspended or revoked if users exceed certain thresholds set by the library. Students owing money to the library will be placed on registrar hold, which prevents registration and course changes. Additionally, diplomas and transcripts will be held until the charges have been completely cleared at the library.

It is your responsibility to notify the library of any address changes, so that you may receive notification of overdue materials or fines owed.
