Appealing Fines

Any library borrower may appeal library fines, fees or replacement costs through an online appeal form. To submit an appeal, use the form linked here. If you need assistance with the online form, or are unable to submit the online form, please contact Library Account Services for assistance.

You can appeal fines for a variety of reasons, including library error, personal emergency, or financial hardship.

Decisions about fine appeals come at the end of the quarter when you submitted the form--for example, you would hear about an appeal filed in October after the end of Autumn quarter, in December.

Learn more about the appeals process, and see a detailed FAQ, on this page.
