Overdue Fines

The following items accrue a $1.00 per hour overdue fine:

  • Equipment items (laptops, iPads, chargers, microphones, etc.) 
  • Reserve items
  • DVD new releases 

Patrons will be notified via email when items are overdue. After three notices, the item will be declared lost, and the patron's OPUS account will be charged a replacement fee + the maximum overdue fine for that item. 

Laptops, iPads, and chargers may not be renewed, and fines for all overdue technology (laptops, iPads, chargers or adapters) are $1 per hour for each item. After returning a laptop, the borrower must wait 2 hours before checking out another due to the high demand on laptops.
