If an item is not returned when due, an overdue notice will be sent one day after the due date. If not returned, a replacement cost and processing fee will be assessed. Overdue fines may also be assessed.
Patrons who fail to return overdue items and/or pay lost item charges and late fees have an outstanding YVC debt. If not paid within thirty days of notice of the assessed fines and fees, the debt may be assigned to a collection agency for collection and additional costs will be added pursuant to RCW 19.16.600.
Until the material is returned and/or the debt paid in full, library services will be suspended and borrowing of additional materials prohibited.
In addition, STUDENTS will lose access to:
- Registration for classes at YVC
- Off-campus use of online databases and other electronic resources (e.g., ProQuest, EBSCO, eBooks)
EMPLOYEES who fail to return resources and/or pay the replacement charge(s) have an outstanding YVC debt. Until the material has been returned or the replacement charge(s) have been paid in full, library/media services will be suspended. In addition, retirement or resignation paperwork may be delayed.
Full payment by cash, check, or credit card may be made at the YVC Cashier’s Office, located in Building 8 (Deccio). Payment may also be made by mail to YVC Cashier, Yakima Valley College, P.O. Box 22520, Yakima, WA 98907-2520.
