Overdue fees

When loans are returned late, overdue fees accrue according to the library’s service charges. If the borrower has unpaid overdue fees of a total of 10 € or more, a patron block will take effect. A borrower with a patron block cannot borrow, reserve or renew books. The patron block is removed when the overdue fees are paid (total charge or minimum amount).

For staff at University of Vaasa, VAMK and Novia daily overdue fees will not accrue. However, a patron block will take effect for staff members, if loans are not returned despite several requests. The patron block will be removed when the requested material has been returned and the fee (10 €) has been paid.

The maximum overdue fee is 10 €/loan. For short loans, the maximum overdue fee is 12 €/loan. 


If loans are not returned, though several requests have been made, the library sends an invoice for the material. Compensation also has to be paid for damaged, destroyed and lost material.
