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.
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
