Overdue materials & Appeals

Overdue materials

If any library material is overdue, your borrowing privileges are suspended until all items are returned.
In order to provide equitable service to all Library patrons, time limits on Library materials are strictly enforced. 

Category Fines
Item not returned Cost of replacing the item + $5 processing fee
Item eventually found or returned Only the replacement cost is refunded

No refunds are given after four months of receipt of payment. Fines or lost charges of $10.00 or more result in blocks on PSU student records, and/or other collection procedures for community patrons. 

Overdue notices are sent as a courtesy to remind you of overdue material. Failure to receive notices does not waive fines. Please ask the Circulation Desk for assistance if you are concerned that you might have overdue items.  


All patrons have the right to appeal any fines or charges they feel may have been assessed in error. To initiate the appeal process, please contact supervisors at the Circulation Desk for an Appeal Form.
