The standard replacement charge is $150 per item, plus a nonrefundable processing fee of $10.

If the actual replacement cost of a particular item (including costs to order and catalog the item) is greater than $150, more will be charged.

If the borrower has been billed for replacement of a book, and the individual can provide a replacement acceptable to The Library, the $150 replacement charge will be canceled.

To follow up on a particular item, contact the library where it was originally located.

For more information, see Overdue, Lost, or Damaged Material.
