A book's status is considered "lost" after it has been overdue for 3 weeks. At that point, a $60 lost book fee will be applied to the patron's account ($75 for Korean language books). The patron then has three choices:

A. Bring the book back and pay the overdue fine (not to exceed the lost book fee), or

B. Personally purchase the book for the library and pay a $15.00 processing fee, or

C. Pay the $60.00 lost book fee ($75 for Korean-language books).

Please note that patrons will be prevented from checking out library materials if their account has over $50 in fines. If a patron chooses not to pay the entire lost book fee at once, they must still reduce their outstanding fines below $50 to check out additional materials.

If you have any questions about these policies, or believe that the book's overdue status is in error because it was already returned, please email the circulation manager, Emilio, at Circulation staff will conduct a search for the book, and update you of any change in status.
