We all love books, and the Leatherby Libraries does everything in its power to make sure that you have access to the ones you need. We know you have the best of intentions to return your borrowed items on time, but sometimes, life gets in the way, and you overlook that important due date. What should you do?

When you have an overdue book, your first move should be to return it as soon as possible. The longer you keep it beyond the due date, the greater the fine. Remember, there are probably other students who would like to have access to it, too!

The next step is to respond to the email that you receive from the library regarding the late fees incurred. Call the Brandman University Library Assistant at (800) 344-5756 Ext 1. to verify the total amount due.

The Leatherby Libraries has several options for paying your fines, and our Library Assistant will explain them to you. Make sure that you take care of your outstanding fines to avoid any further action.

In the end, as much as we’d all like to keep every book close, we do have to abide by the due dates, so try not to sit on your overdue books too long. As always, if you have questions, please contact your Brandman librarians or library assistant. We’re here to help.

Library Fines and Fees

Library fees 2

The Leatherby Libraries offers Document Delivery services free of charge to Brandman patrons. This means that students, staff, and faculty can request items that we own and items that we borrow via interlibrary loan (ILL), and have them sent directly to their home or office. This is a free service; however, there are a few instances in which your library account may be charged: overdue books, damaged books, and lost books.

In the case of overdue materials, there are different fees depending on the type of material borrowed, but all overdue fees cap at a $10.00 maximum. This means that the most you can be charged in overdue fees for a single item is $10.00, even if you returned it a year late (Of, course, we don’t want you to keep it for an entire year!).

For books we own, the fine is $0.25 a day for each day overdue. Videos, CDs, and DVDs are assessed $1.00 each day overdue. ILL books are also fined $1.00 for each day overdue, so if you return a Leatherby Libraries book and an ILL book 2 days late, you will be charged $0.50 for the Leatherby Libraries’ book, but $2.00 for the ILL book.

You can also be charged if you return a book to us, but it is damaged. Sometimes, books are returned with broken binding, torn pages, water damage, etc. These book fees are assessed on a case by case basis. You may be charged as little as $5.00 or as much as the cost of replacing the book, depending on the extent of the damage.

Finally, if you have a book that you never returned, the library will charge you the full cost of the book, along with a replacement and processing fee. The charge to replace a book can vary, depending on the cost of the item in question.

You can log into your account at any time to check on due dates and current fines and fees. Simply go the library homepage and click on “My Account.”

As always, if you have any questions about fees and fines, please contact your Brandman staff. You can also see the full fines policy on the Brandman University Library Borrowing Policies and Procedures page.
