Fines, notices, suspensions

The Library will send you reminder notices when your loans are nearly due as well as overdue.  These will go to your ACU email address.  They are sent as a courtesy.  It is up to you to renew or return items on time to avoid paying fines.

If you have overdue items, including those from other ACU libraries or non-ACU libraries, or you have fines of $10 or more you will not be able to:

  • borrow
  • renew
  • place a hold

Fines are charged at the following rates:

Type of Loan


Standard items

50 cents per item per day

High demand

$1.00 per hour (or part thereof)

Restricted loans

$2 per item per day

Fines are capped at $50 per item.

Contact your campus library if you have any queries about fines.

The Library Guidelines have more detailed information about fines, notices and suspensions.
