  • If patron is threatening or belligerent, they may be asked to leave the Library for the day without additional warnings.


  • Overdue fines are 25 cents per day for books that check out to the public.
  • Reserve Material fines are $1 per hour for 2-hour materials and $1 a day for 1-day, 3-day, and 1-week materials.
  • If a patron returns an item from the Cañada College Library collection in unusable condition (excessive wear and tear, excessive writing and/or underlining and highlighting in pen, pencil, marker, or crayon, water damage, etc.) they will be charged either the replacement amount or, after getting approval from library staff, can purchase a replacement in a condition that meets library staff standards.
  • Resolving Student Fines for Unreturned Items

    When a student does not return high cost and/or high demand Library items (such as textbooks, Chromebooks, laptops, graphing calculators, etc.) by the due date, the Library will make reasonable efforts to contact the student to resolve unreturned items. This includes email and phone calls and may include contacting non-library faculty, staff, or administration.

    If the student does not respond or the Library and the student are not able to come to a resolution, the Library will take the following actions:

    • The student’s check-out privileges will be suspended until the fine is resolved.
    • Put a hold on the student’s Banner account. This prevents the student from registering for classes and getting their transcript until the unreturned item fine is resolved.
    • If the student is participating in any Library programs (such as TLC) their participation will be suspended until the fine is resolved.
    • If the situation is not resolved after the resolution process, the student will be reported to the Library’s division Dean.
