Library fines accrue for items that are returned late or kept past their due date. The amount of the fine is determined by the type of item borrowed. Fines help to ensure that items are returned within a certain period of time so that they are available for PCC students, faculty, staff, and community members when needed. See Loan Periods and Fines for details about specific fines. Pay Fines You can pay your fines online with a MasterCard or Visa credit card. If you prefer to use another method of payment, come to a library check out desk and get a printed fines statement. Then you can visit the Student Account Services Office at your campus to pay by cash or check. You will need to bring a receipt from Student Accounts back to the library to have the fines resolved. Donate Items to Reduce Fines You can donate items to reduce any overdue fines. Learn more at Donate Items to Reduce Fines. Appeal Fines Please submit the form for Library Account Questions to appeal library charges if there are special factors that justify a reduction or cancellation of library charges or if the charges were made in error. Appeals must be made within 60 calendar days of the original charge. Patrons can expect a response within three business days or sooner.
