What are the Library's fines and fees?

We do not charge overdue fines for regular books and movies.  However, you will be placed on the Library Stoplist if you fail to return materials you borrowed. You will be sent an invoice charging you a nonrefundable $15.00 processing fee for each item you did not return.

While you are on the Stoplist, you will not be able to borrow from the Library and you will not receive your TC3 transcript or diploma. You can be cleared from the Stoplist once you have returned what you've borrowed and paid processing and lost item fees. It can take up to forty-eight hours to be cleared from the Stoplist.

Books can be returned to the Library directly, to TC3 Extension Centers in Ithaca or Cortland, or mailed with our prepaid shipping label to: Tompkins Cortland Community College Library, 170 North St, P.O. Box 139, Dryden, NY 13053, Attn: Lucy Yang.

You can also return library materials in the Library's drop slot.  It can be used anytime the main TC3 building is open, even if the Library is closed.  The drop slot is located on the second floor, across from Room 250, near the red elevator. Please contact the Office of Public Safety at 607-844-6511 for specific building hours. 

Please see the Library's Policies for more information.
