* Please see note

* A Fine Free Account does not generate late fees except on Interlibrary Loan items and Museum passes. If an item is “late” the account is blocked until that item is returned, but no fines are accrued except as mentioned. If an item is kept until the computer generates an “Item Lost” status then the patron is charged for the full cost of replacement plus the $2.50 processing fee.
