Fines & Fees

OVERDUE FINES will be charged when patron returns or renews library materials late. The amount of fine is calculated when material is returned. The patron has to pay the overdue fines at the time the book is returned at the Circulation Desk.

For general collection:

  • Internal user = 5 Baht per day
  • External user = 10 Baht per day

For reserve collection:

  • 20 Baht per day

Library Automation System automatically blocks patrons who have accrued fines of 100 Baht. Patrons with blocked accounts will not be able to check out new books or renew books on loan until the fine is settled.

Overdue notices

Overdue notices will be sent to all patrons who are liable for fines via e-mail or by mail at the beginning and in the middle of each month.

Patrons can check due dates on all items checked out to them, as well as renew them, by logging in the library website and view your check-out record.
