*Library patrons are responsible for all items checked out on their accounts.  The library may send courtesy notices prior to an item’s due date but it is the borrower’s responsibility to know their items’ due dates and renew or return items in a timely manner.

* Overdue notices are sent 1 day and 3 weeks after items are due. If an item is 30 days overdue, a maximum fine of $15 will be charged for materials owned by Otterbein's Library; this excludes reserve items and equipment, which might incur a higher fee. A maximum fine of $50 will be charged for any OhioLink item that is 30 days overdue.

* After 30 days, a $115 replacement fee is charged for any item owned by Otterbein's Library, and $125 for any OhioLink item. The library has the right to charge more as needed for items such as laptop computers depending on their cost.

*Fine Appeal Form:
If you would like to appeal a fine that has been added to your library account you may do so via the Fine Appeal Form.  This form must be printed out and submitted to the circulation supervisor's for review.  Please be as detailed as possible in the form so that a decision can be made that is fair to both you and other library patrons.

* Any unpaid fines that are sent to the Business Office will incur an additional $5 processing fee.
