*No daily fines are administered for non-reserve books; when a book has been overdue for 60 days, the book is automatically marked "Lost" and an automated bill in the amount of $125 is generated. The bill reflects a $100 replacement cost as well as a $25 processing fee. More information on “Lost” items.
