Media $1.00 per day/per item
Hourly Reserves 50¢ per hour/per item

Weekly Laptops $20.00 per day

Library Notices

The LCSC Library emails overdue notices each weekday. Notices are a courtesy and failure to receive one does not constitute the waiving of any incurred fines.

Lost or Damaged Items

Items not returned by the assigned due date will be listed as lost and a lost item fee will be charged to the borrower.

Damaged material will be evaluated and individuals will be charged a replacement cost for the item.

Suspension of Privileges
Patrons will not be able to check out materials (including laptops) if they have an overdue item or an existing library fine. Students with overdue materials or fines will have a hold placed on their record in the campus Colleague system. The hold will remain until all financial obligations have been cleared with the library.

If an item is found within 90 days of payment and a copy hasn’t been purchased, the LCSC Library will refund the  cost of the item, minus a $10 processing fee. Overdue fees will not be refunded.

If an item has been found, but the library has already purchased another copy, the library is unable to offer a refund. You may keep the item.
