Reserves: Overdue Fines

Lateness and Fines

Excessive lateness is heavily penalized.

A reader will be blocked from borrowing additional library materials when:

  • he or she has accumulated $5.00 in fines,
  • he or she has one or more overdue book(s),
  • he or she has been billed for a lost book,
  • a recalled item has not been returned. (Recall fines are levied at the rate of $1.00 per day.)

Brooklyn College students with outstanding fines or other obligations will not be able to register for their classes or to obtain transcripts.

A similar failure on the part of borrowers not affiliated with Brooklyn College may result in the suspension or revocation of borrowing privileges.

Items returned late incur late fines.

Late fines for Reserve materials at the Brooklyn College Library are:

  • $6.00 per hour for all Reserve loans (capped at $100)
