Overdue items

After a grace period, you will be charged a $5 per item overdue fee. Until the overdue item is returned, you will be unable to check out further materials. Once the item is returned, your borrowing privileges will be restored. However, the fine is still owed. Payment should be made at the ASU One Stop in the Student Union Building. The receipt must then be brought to the library in order for your library account to be cleared. After payment receipt, fines will be cleared within 1 business day.

Lost items

You will be charged for the replacement of the items plus a processing fee. We cannot accept replacement copies in exchange for the fee. Lost materials must be paid for before checking out additional materials. Payment should be made at the ASU One Stop in the Student Union Building. The receipt must then be brought to the library in order for your library account to be cleared.
