If you keep an item for longer than its stated loan period, you will receive overdue notices via email until the item is returned.
We do not charge overdue fees, but once an item has been overdue for one month it is automatically considered lost and replacement fees are applied. All fees are waived once the item is returned.
If you lose or damage an item, you will be billed for the full replacement cost. Please contact the Earl Center, email@example.com, if you have any questions.
