What am I supposed to do once book and audio-visual reference materials exceed the date limit?
Readers need to pay a penalty for delay or be suspended once book and audio-visual reference materials exceed the date limit.
- The suspension days are calculated by multiplying the number of your overdue items by the number of late days. Suspension days can be converted to a penalty of NT$1 per suspension day. Both suspensions and penalty fees are calculated a running total.
- The penalty fee for a book is NT$1 per day exceeding the time limit; NT$2 per day is calculated once each The penalty fee for an audio-visual material item is NT$2 per day exceeding the time limit. The upper limits are 180 suspension days or NT$ 180 penalty fees.
After paying up the overdue penalty or waiting until suspension days have passed, readers can borrow books and make reservations again.
