Fines & Fees


If a book is checked out to someone else, you can ask the staff at the checkout desk to either place a hold or recall the book for you.

  • Putting it on hold means you'll get the book next as long as nobody else is in line.
  • You'll get an email when the book is ready to be checked out.
    • Books & DVDs on hold are at the Main Level Service Desk near the coffee shop.
  • You can't put holds on reserve books.
