Circulation of Library Materials: Overdue Materials


Fines are charged for overdue library materials to encourage library users to return them on time. Fines and fees accrued at one CMC library may be paid in cash only at another CMC library.

Overdue fines and blocks can be avoided by returning library materials on time, and avoiding situations such as checking out library materials for another person or letting someone borrow your library card. 

Notice to College Students


If overdue materials are not returned before the end of the current semester, or if a student owes library fines for $10.00 or more, the responsible student may be blocked from:

  • registering for the next semester
  • graduating
  • obtaining transcripts required to transfer to another college or university

--until the student resolves the situation with the library.

Avoid these problems by returning library materials on time.

Overdue Fines

The following table lists overdue fines according to type of material. A “business day” is defined as any day that the library is open.
