Library Fines


Note: All Library locations are currently closed. Due dates for all checked out items have been extended until September 11th. We ask that you hold onto items until the Library reopens.

Fines are charged by the library to encourage users to return items on time. Fines are calculated each day the library is open.

 Fine Rates

  • 14 day loans - 50 cents per day per item
  • Reserve items (1 & 2 hour loans) - $1.00 per hour per item
  • Reserve items (Overnight & 3 day loans) - $5.00 per day per item
  • Laptops, mice, chargers, webcams and calculators (4 hour loans), Chromebooks (6 hour loans) - $5.00 per hour per item
  • Bike loans - $1.00 per day

 Overdue Fines

A hold will be placed on your library account and your Mohawk College academic account preventing you from borrowing library material, registering for courses, receiving grades, and requesting transcripts if:

  • Library materials have not been returned
  • Fines total $10.00 or more
  • Fines have not been paid on an item which is overdue by 2 weeks or more
  • Billed for items

The hold will be removed once the fine is paid in full.
