OVERDUE, LOST AND DAMAGED QUEST LIBRARY BOOKS AND DVDS
Quest Library does not collect payment for overdue fines from patrons. This decision is informed by the Honour Principle, which all incoming students pledge to uphold at Convocation.
While not collected, fines do accrue on patrons’ Library accounts, and may block borrowing privileges if:
- the balance exceeds $50
- five items or more are marked as lost
To restore borrowing privileges, patrons must speak with a Library staff person. If you have questions, please email email@example.com or ask at the Circulation desk.
Check your Quest Library account.
Overdue items are marked lost by the circulation system upon the third notice.
Lost charges are posted to a patron’s account only after a final recovery effort by Quest Library staff. This consists of a personalized reminder email followed by an itemized account of the total charge that will be posted if lost items are not returned by a specified date.
Damaged items are assessed by Library staff and decisions are emailed to patrons.
The total charge is the replacement cost of each item plus a processing fee of $20 per item.
