Q. There is a block on my library account. What does that mean?


Your library account will be blocked, so that you cannot check out or renew any items, for any of the following reasons:

  • You owe a total of $5.00 or more in fines and fees

  • Any book on your record that is 30 days overdue

  • Any book which has been recalled from you has not been returned by the new due date

  • Any email we send you is bounced back

Please note that there are more blocks that may appear in your account, which will not cause your record to be placed on Administrative Hold.  See the Circulation Department if you have any questions.
