Overdue and Lost Materials | Fine & Fee Schedule for Student Borrowing

There is NO FEE for any library item returned by the due date!

Returning materials on time is your responsibility. As a courtesy, we will send an e-mail notice to your KVCC e-mail address if you have overdue or lost materials. Please be sure to check your KVCC e-mail frequently so any library notices will reach you.

Overdue fines are charged for materials returned after the due date.  A replacement fee and overdue fines are charged for any lost materials. Lost items also result in a hold being placed on your college account, blocking transcripts and grades, and blocking your library checkout privileges.
