Overdue Fine Forgiveness Now in Effect

by Diane Hahn on 2021-01-21T10:38:30-05:00 | Comments

Still have library books hanging around and it's been a while since they were due? Unsure about requesting items through our Library to Go service? We know getting and returning books hasn't been the same given the college's COVID-19 shutdown and only partial reopening of campuses since. To help ease the inconvenience and also to show our appreciation of your support, we've made a change to our overdue fine policies for the foreseeable future.

The libraries will not be charging overdue fines on any borrowed items that are returned late, after their due date. In addition, we've waived all outstanding overdue fines that were lingering on borrower accounts. 

Even with these changes to fines, be aware that due dates are still in effect, which assures that library materials are available and accessible for others to use. Due date courtesy reminders and overdue email notices will continue. Borrowers will be billed for unreturned and lost items. You'll still be responsible for paying any resulting replacement fees if items don't come back to us by the end of the semester.

Our overdue item and fine policy will be reviewed and is subject to change when NCC and the libraries are able to fully reopen.

Have items you're ready to return? You can do so by using our outdoor dropboxes located at both campuses or through UPS shipping (at no cost to you). To return by UPS, email librarytogo@northampton.edu to request a shipping label and envelope. Learn more about these return options.
