Library Fines Amnesty Until November 30, 2019

Do You Have Overdue Books from the Library?

Now is the time to return any overdue, lost, or missing books and have those overdue fines waved! Until November 30, 2019, when you return an overdue, lost, or missing book that belongs to the library, we will waive the associated fines when you return it.

How does the Fines Amnesty work?

  • Bring your overdue, lost, or missing books to the Ask Us Desk on the first floor of the library during regular business hours (Monday to Friday 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday between 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Sundays between 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.).
  • Staff will then claim the book and waive any fines or fees associated with the item in your patron record.

Please note that the Fines Amnesty does not apply to overdue Course Reserve books or materials, overdue inter-library loan books or to any book that is overdue after being recalled by another patron.
