Q. I would like to appeal a library fine. What should I do?

Answer

OVERDUE NOTICES

Overdue notices are sent as a courtesy to users by Milne Library. Failure to receive notices does not exempt the user from paying replacement or processing fees. When materials are borrowed, a date due is provided. If a borrower fails to return library materials,  collection costs are passed on to the user.  Students may have a hold placed on their student account and community/alumni may be turned over to a collection agency.  Once overdue fees are accrued on a user's account, their library account may be blocked until fees are paid in full. All library users are billed for damaged or lost materials.

FINES & FEES

Patrons will be assessed a $70 lost item replacement charge for General Collection items (If lost items are returned, patrons are responsible for a $10 processing fee per item), or the cost of replacement for Special Collections items.  If you wish to dispute a charge to your account, please submit a Fine Appeal Form.
