In this guide, you'll find information for reserve items, shelving locations, and loan rules for library items.


In the Spalding tradition of compassion and equity, the library never wants finances to be a barrier to access. Therefore, we do not charge recurring fines on our regular circulation materials. The only times we assess fines/fees are for damaged or lost books, or for the collections in the table below. 

Fines are charged on a daily basis according their respective collection. If an item is overdue for an extended amount of time or damaged, patrons may be charged a replacement fee for the item as well as a $5.00 processing fee for the replacement. Fees are waived upon the return of an overdue/lost item. If items are left unpaid or unreturned, a transcript hold will be placed on student's account until the materials are returned. 


Item Type Fines Fees
Interlibrary Loan $1.00/day fine Cost determined by lending library
Games $1.00/day fine $30.00 replacement
Switch Games $1.00/day fine $50.00  replacement
Print Books No Accruing Fines $30.00 replacement
Laptops $1.00/day fine $400 replacement (Laptop)
$35 replacement (Charger and/or bag)
