Appeal a Fine

Appeal a Fine

The fine appeal form may be filled out if there is a discrepancy involving a library fine, fee, or replacement cost. Fines and fees are not waived due to:

  • Lack of knowledge of library policy
  • Non-agreement with library fine or fee structure
  • Material loaned to another person
  • Non-receipt or late receipt of library reminder notice
  • Forgetting the due date
  • Not being able to get to library to return the item
  • Financial hardship

If an item appears on your library account that you believe you have already returned, please submit a Not on Shelf form and we will search for it.


Include as much detail as possible about the transaction (including specific dates and times).

This proves that you’re human.
