    • Recalled items returned late will be charged a fine of $5.00/day to a maximum of $50.00.
  • 1 Day: $5.00/day to a maximum of $50.00
  • 2 Hours: $1.00/hour to a maximum of $50.00

Payment Options

Fines can be paid with debit, VISA, Mastercard, or ONE Card Condor Cash. We are unable to accept cash for fines.

Note: Late fines are charged based on days the Library is open.

Reminders are sent advising when items are late. Items not returned after the third notice are handled by Conestoga’s Finance Department.

Library privileges are blocked when there are outstanding materials or fines on your account. College transcripts, certificates, diplomas and degrees are withheld by Conestoga until all outstanding accounts are cleared.
