Do you have fines on your Library account?
Don’t pay it back. Pay it forward!
Novanet Libraries, including the Mount Library, no longer charge overdue fines on regular loans.
Overdue fines may still apply to high-demand items such as equipment (i.e., laptops, room keys), Reserves, recalls, etc.
You can pay off your Mount Library fines by donating to the Students’ Union Food Bank.
