2 Day Loan Late Return Fees

From the Suggestion Box:

Fines need to be reviewed. $10 fine for overdue 2-day loan items when no one has requested the item is over the top. Fines should only be issued if the item has been requested.

Library Response:

All overdue library items attract fines. 2 Day loans in particular are usually high use textbooks and need to be returned on time to enable fair use. It is possible to renew loans, including 2 day loans, online if they have not been requested before the due date. Otherwise it is necessary they be returned on time.
