Reserve fines accrue at a rate of $2.50 for the first hour and $.50 per hour thereafter. Any part of a day or hour is computed as a full day or hour.
After 57+ hours, a non-refundable $30 billing charge plus a replacement
cost of $150 or more will be assessed.
All days and hours are counted for fining purposes whether the library
unit is open or closed.
Unpaid library fines may result in the blocking of registration, graduation, transcripts, and other sanctions.

Appeal of Library Charges
and complete the Appeals Form.
Returning Reserve Material
If the library is open, Reserve materials must be returned to the Information Commons Desk.
If the library is closed, Reserve materials may be placed in the after-hours book drop located directly outside the Campus Library or on Campus Way NE near the Library Annex.
Reserve materials must be returned to the library where they were checked out. Reserve materials returned to UW Tacoma or UW Seattle are not checked in
until they reach the UWB/CCC Campus Library. This may take several days; during this time, fines will be charged.
Reserve materials cannot be renewed.
If a Reserve material is needed longer, you must physically bring it to the Information Commons Desk for check in/out.
Reserve materials may be checked in and back out for an additional checkout if
another patron is not waiting in person for the item.
