Returning Late & Fines
If a user returns library materials late, the following penalties apply:
- The user cannot borrow any material from the library before returning the borrowed material, even if it is late for one day, because the library system functions in the way.
- A fine is imposed on the user two days after the due date of returning the material in accordance with categories of users, as shown in (table 2)
- If the user loses or damages a book, he/she is required to bring a substitute copy of the same edition or the latest edition of the book within a month. If the user cannot bring a copy, he/she will be required to pay the price of the book plus half of its price (the price of the book + half its price). The user will have to pay the fine for the overdue time as well.
- If the book is of the rare books or gifted books, then the borrower must pay the amount that is determined by the supply department, in light of the price of the missing or damaged material and its rarity in the market after securing the approval of the director of the library. The borrower must pay the fine for overdue time as well.
