Overdue Notices, Fees, Account Blocks

Overdue Notices

Library emails two courtesy overdue notices to patrons - fourteen and thirty days after the due date. Non-receipt of an overdue notice does not exempt a borrower from applicable fees. To avoid overdue notices and fees, borrowers should return or renew materials before the due date.


Library patrons are responsible for all materials charged to their accounts. If overdue Concordia materials are not returned or renewed within 30 days of the due date, the material will be considered lost, an invoice issued and the patron’s account blocked. Unpaid library fees are sent to a collection agency. If overdue materials are returned, replacement costs are waived. The minimum replacement cost per item is $75.00. This fee also applies to materials damaged while in the patrons’ possession. The Klinck Memorial Library accepts cash, money orders, and certified checks. Payment receipts are available upon request. 

Account Blocks

A patron’s Concordia account is blocked when Concordia material is not returned or renewed within 30 days of the due date. A patron’s I-Share account is blocked when one of the following thresholds is reached:

  • 25 items are overdue.
  • 1 item is recalled and overdue.
  • 3 items are lost.
  • $200.00 total in fines and fees is accumulated. Fees owed to the home library are not counted toward this UB block.
