Fines are charged for all overdue library materials (books, reserve items, DVDs, CDs, circulating equipment, etc.).

There is a five-day grace period in which to return regular circulating items without fines. If the library item is returned after this period has passed, fines will be charged starting with the first day the library item was overdue.

This grace period does NOT apply to reserve items and circulating equipment. Fines for these materials begin as soon as they become overdue.


To determine if you have a fine:

  • Login to the library catalog's My Account.
  • Instructions for your User ID and PIN are on the login page, along with phone numbers if you need assistance. 
  • Review your account.

Details about fines for Joyner Library and Music Library materials may be found in the Joyner and Music Libraries' Circulation Procedure.
