Library Fines

The table below shows you how the library assesses fines. This fine structure is consistent for all UW Colleges libraries.

You are accountable for damages done to equipment that may occur during the time it is checked out to you.

You cannot check out equipment if you have unpaid fines on your library account. 

Please check your email often to get courtesy notices about items coming due. 

It's easy to avoid fines by keeping track of how many items you borrow, when they are due, caring for them respectfully, and returning them on time.  Information on due dates and materials borrowed is available from your Search@UW account.  Library staff will be happy to show you how to sign in and find your account page.  Just ask us if you have any questions.
