There are no overdue fines for Egan Library materials from the General Collection that are returned late. Overdue fines for Reserve materials are charged at the rate of $1.00 per hour for hourly checkouts and $5.00 per day for all others. The maximum fine is $20.00 per Reserve item. When a patron has incurred $10.00 or more in fines from any CCL library, or materials have not been returned for 28 days, the library suspends borrowing privileges until fines are paid and the item is returned, or a replacement fee has been paid.
One overdue notice is emailed when an item is approximately 7 days overdue. The next notice is a bill for the replacement cost of the item. Replacement costs for Reserve materials will vary; replacement costs for all other Egan Library materials are as follows:
- Juvenile $20.00

Processing and Acquisition Fees
A $15 fee will be included in addition to the above replacement costs for items that need to be re-acquired by the Egan Library. If an item is returned within six (6) months of becoming lost the material cost will be forgiven but the processing fee will remain. After six months of being lost no replacement costs will be forgiven for any reason.
Return of Damaged Materials
An item should be returned in the same condition in which it was loaned. Patrons who return a damaged item are liable for fees up to the replacement cost.
