Q. Can I bring in a replacement book for the book I lost or damaged?
I have been billed for a book but do not want to pay the large fine. May I bring in a book to replace the one I lost/damaged?

Yes! We will gladly take a copy of the exact book to cover the replacement fee. The book may still be subject to a fine of up to $15 as an overdue/processing charge. Here are the guidelines:
- Must match the item lost (exception: replacement copy can be a newer edition of the same item)
- Can be a used copy, but must be in "very good," "excellent," or "like new" condition
- Must be free of highlighting or other writing
- Cannot be a former library copy
Please ask a staff member in the circulation/user services department to provide you a copy of the record from the library catalog if you need the specifics including the date and publisher, as well as the ISBN.
If you are unsure if a specific copy meets the requirements above, please check with one of the User Experience Supervisors or with the User Experience Librarian before purchasing a particular copy.
