Student laptops have a four hour check out with a fine of $1.00 for each hour overdue

Overdue reserve material that is checked out in hourly increments is 25¢ for each hour or part of an hour overdue. Overdue reserve material that is checked in daily increments is $1.00 per day. All overdue reserve material has a maximum fine of $10.00 per item, if item is returned.

A recall fine of $1.00 per day, beginning on the eighth day after recall notification, is assessed for recalled items. This fine is in addition to any other fines incurred.

Slowness of the mail or failure to receive an overdue notice sent by the library does not exempt the borrower from charges. Fines and other charges may be paid at the Circulation Desk at any time the library is open. Cash, Loper Dollars or personal checks made out to the University of Nebraska at Kearney for the amount will be accepted.  Debit and credit cards may be used to pay fines at the Finance Office.

Any time a borrower owes $10.00 or more, borrowing privileges are suspended until the amount is paid.
