Items are considered “lost” if not returned within 45 days. Borrowers are charged
the actual cost for the item plus a $25 non-refundable processing fee for the 1st
item and a $10 fee for each additional item.
Borrowers are responsible for returning books and other items in good condition
and will be assessed fees for damages. Types of damage for which a borrower will
be charged include, but are not limited to, water damage, pen/pencil marks,
torn/ripped pages and/or covers, scratched DVDs, missing parts of a multi-part
item. If the Public Services Librarian determines that the damaged item needs
replacement, charges will be the same as if the item has been lost.
Borrowers who wish to check out items that are already damaged and the damage
has not been noted on the item record, should show the damage to the Circulation
Desk staff. The staff will make a note in the item record and not hold the borrower
responsible when the item is returned.
If the actual cost cannot be determined default replacement rates are as follows:
HCC Library extends a one-time privilege to borrowers of claiming that they have
returned materials that the circulation system indicates are still checked out to
“Claims returned” means that a borrower has indicated that he/she has returned an
item that the computerized circulation system indicates is still on their account.
