What if I have an Overdue Connect NY Book?

If an item is not returned within 30 days of the due date or is lost a $100 fine ($75 replacement cost plus $25 processing fee) is automatically issued.  At this point, your borrowing privileges will be suspended.  If the item is returned promptly, the fine is reduced to $10.00, and your borrowing privileges will be reinstated.  If the item is not returned, replacement costs will be determined by the lending library and may be more or less than $100, depending on the actual cost of the book.
