    Overdues and Fines

    The library’s main goal is to have materials returned so that others in the CC community will have access to them. The fines listed below are the most common fines in the library. If you have any questions please contact us.

    CC Community

    Current faculty, students, staff, spouses and dependents will not be charged for overdue books or Government documents. If any item becomes three weeks overdue, your library account will be blocked until the item is returned. 

    Overdue Videos/DVDs

    $2.00 a day for each overdue video or DVD (with a maximum fine of $10.00 per item). Borrowing privileges will be blocked if any videos/DVDs remain overdue for three days or more.

    Reserve Items

    $5.00 per hour for each overdue reserve item and immediate block of all circulation privileges.

    Library Visitors

    $0.50 per day for each overdue book (with a maximum of $15.00 per book). If any item becomes three weeks overdue, your library account will be blocked until the item is returned. 

    Overdue Videos/DVDs (if allowed)

    $2.00 a day for each overdue video or DVD (with a maximum fine of $10.00 per item).

    ** You are responsible for the timely return of all materials, whether or not you receive any reminder or overdue notices from the library.**

    Notifications

    Courtesy Notice is emailed two to three days before an item is due.

    First Overdue Notice is emailed one week after the item is due.

    Second Overdue Notice is emailed two weeks after the item is due informing you that your account will be blocked if your library item becomes three weeks overdue.

    Third Overdue Notice is emailed three weeks after the due date. Your library account is blocked after books become three weeks overdue. This is the final overdue notice before you are billed.

    Billing Notice is emailed four weeks after the due date. You are billed for the current cost of the item plus a $10.00 processing fee. If the item is returned in good condition before it has been reordered or charges sent to your account in the Business Office, the replacement charge will be waived. Items returned after billing has gone to the Business Office will be credited to your student account, but the $10.00 processing fee will remain.
