Appeal of Library Charges

If you believe the library charges are a mistake or you have extenuating circumstances, you may appeal of charges. Appeals should be made within 30 days of original charge.

A notice of overdue items is sent as a reminder. If you do not receive reminder, that does not exempt you from fines or charges. It is your responsibility to assure that a current mailing address or email address is in your library record. You may appeal by completing an Appeal of Library Charges form available at the Circulation desk. 

The Library Director will make a decision in writing within two weeks of receipt of the appeal.

Reasons generally not regarded as valid for canceling or reducing charges:

  • Lack of knowledge of library policy
  • Disagreement with library fine or fee structure
  • Inability to pay fees and charges
  • Material loaned to a third party
  • Non-receipt or late receipt of library reminder notice
  • Returning items to libraries other than the Lane Community College Library
  • Being out of town
  • Forgetting the due date
  • Term breaks, leaves, vacations, exams, car problems, etc.
