Fines, notices, suspensions

The Library will send you reminder notices when your loans are due and overdue notices when they are 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.
