Fines and Fees

Overdue Fines

If you received a fine notice and have questions, contact Meg Frazier at (309) 677-2848 or

Students, faculty and staff from Bradley and other I-Share institutions are not charged daily overdue fines for materials returned after the due date.

  • This includes materials borrowed from the Cullom-Davis Library or ordered from other libraries in the I-Share network.
  • The fine and fee policies for material borrowed from sources outside of the I-Share network are determined by the lending institution and not covered by this change.


  • This policy does not apply to guest or alumni accounts, which are charged 10 cents per day, up to a maximum of $10.00.
  • This policy does not apply to laptop computers, room keys or reserves material. These items are charged $15.00 per hour up to a maximum of $30.00.

Lost Fees

Library items not returned or renewed 28 days after the due date will be declared lost. You will be billed a replacement fee for the cost of the missing material.

  • All Bradley University fines and fees will be cleared once the item has been returned in satisfactory condition.
  • We do not issue refunds for fees paid toward lost material that is later located.
  • The lost material policy for other I-Share libraries is similar, although the number of days necessary to become lost may vary slightly from institution to institution.
