Overdue charges, lost charges, and charges for certain library services - like ILL postage - are automatically added to your library account. You'll
receive an email the day after the charge to let you know about the account activity (unless the charge is paid or waived that same day, in which case no email would be sent).
If you're a student, faculty, or staff, the notice would be sent to your FHU email address. Community, WeTALC, or Affiliate patrons would
recieve the notice at the email address you provided when you signed up for your library account. |
You don't have to pay your library bill immediately: you can leave the charges on your account and pay at your convenience.
There are two important exceptions to note, however:
1. If you get a late fee for an overdue FLIX movie, you have to pay that before you can check out more FLIX movies.
2. Once you reach $25 in total library charges you'd have seven days to settle your bill, either by paying it or by returning / replacing any lost items. If it's not settled after seven days, a block would be placed on your school account, preventing you from registring from future classes, receiving transcripts, etc., until part of your bill is paid. So if you start to accumulate a lot of library charges, please come in and pay some of your balance! Note: at the start of the seven day period, an email will be sent to your FHU student email to outline the policy and make you aware of what's going on; however, failure to receive or take note of the email doesn't exempt you from this policy.
Library charges can be paid with cash or check, and are accepted at the Main Library, AV Library, or Learning Resource Library.
