The fine for overdue reserves materials is $1.20 per hour. Bills for overdue fines may be obtained at the Circulation Desks at each library or the Reserve Desk of Main Library.  Fines can be paid by check at the Circulation Desk at any of the Hunter College libraries or in cash at the College’s Bursar Office. Reserve delinquencies may result in the suspension of borrowing privileges. A library stop will be placed on a student's record with the Registrar once a bill is generated for unreturned reserve materials.
