What are library fees, and how do I pay them?
Overdue fines for reserves and recalls
Wyndham Robertson Library only charges overdue fines for items in high demand by the community: items on reserve, and items which have been recalled.
- Hourly reserves: $1 per hour
- 3 day reserves: $1 per day
- Recalls: $1 per day
The maximum overdue fine per item is $15. At 29 days, the item is presumed lost.
Replacement charges for lost or damaged materials
When an item is long overdue (29 days after the original due date) it is assumed lost, and replacement charges are assessed. The default replacement charge is $55.00 per item.
Please contact us as soon as you receive a bill for lost or damaged materials. We want to work with you to resolve the situation. For example, you may be able to purchase a replacement item directly instead of paying the default charge (exact ISBN # matches only). But to do this, you must first contact us to approve the purchase.
Interlibrary Loan (ILL): Replacement charges for ILL items are determined by the lending library. For more information call 540-362-6239 or email ILL Services at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What to do if your account is blocked
Borrowing privileges, including Interlibrary Loan will be temporarily suspended when lost item charges or reserve and recall fines reach $50. To restore privileges, please return any overdue items and pay your balance as soon as possible. If you have any questions, please contact us.
Paying library fees
Library fees may be paid at the circulation desk, by returning the items and paying any balance. However, account balances transferred to the Business Office must be settled there.
The library can accept checks made out to Hollins University, and exact change. If you need to mail a check, use this address:
