Blocks to Borrower Accounts due to Long Overdue (“Billed”) Items:
Adopted Fall, 2011
The New Policy
The new policy states that items you have checked out which become long overdue (“billed”), will result in your library borrowing privileges being suspended (“blocked”), until such time as either:
- You bring back the item/s to the library, or
- You pay the replacement fee for the item/s
Prompt return of the item/s in question will result in the replacement cost being cleared from your account, and your borrowing privileges being reinstated.
Changes from the Previous Policy
In the old policy, if you had long overdue or “billed” items, you were charged a replacement fee for each item, as well as a $10 non-refundable processing fee; however, your library privileges were still active. In the new policy, the $10 processing fee is no longer being charged. Your borrowing privileges are suspended until you pay the replacement cost for the material, or you return the material.
Materials This Applies to
The policy applies to all physical library materials that can be checked out.
