Late Charges:

Late charges are 25¢ a day for each item, with a $5 maximum for each item.

Lost or Damaged Items:

The cost of the item plus a $5 processing fee will be charged for items lost or returned damaged beyond repair

You also have the option of replacing the lost item with a brand new copy as long as the ISBN number matches, it is the same edition and you provide a receipt. There will also be a $5.00 processing fee if you choose this option.
