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/fees are generally 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
  • Being out of town
  • 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 and you are being charged for it, please submit a Not on Shelf form and the Library will search for it.

Please consult the Library circulation policy for further details.
