Once an item becomes 30 days overdue, the library assumes the book is lost. At this point, a patron is billed the standard replacement fee of $75.00 and a $20.00 non-refundable processing fee for each item 30 days or more past due. Patrons' privileges are suspended and their library accounts blocked until the book is either returned or paid for. The library reserves the right to charge the actual replacement cost for each book listed in Bowker's Global Books in Print.
Once a book is returned the $95.00 in replacement costs are reduced to the $20.00 non-refundable processing fee.
