However, please note that replacement fees are charged for damaged, lost, and long overdue items as detailed below:

Laptops $400 for laptop, $35 for charger
Laptops with SPSS software $500 for laptop & software, $35 for charger

Holds will be placed on the accounts of patrons with damaged, lost, or long overdue items until items are returned or replacement fees are paid.

If you have questions or concerns about fees or holds on your library account, please contact the Collections & Online Resources Librarian.
