IMC Fines

  • In an effort to ensure access for all students to books and materials, students should return their library materials on time. Fine notices are sent through students' advisories each month, either via email or paper copy.  Additionally, students can check their account status by logging in to our library catalog using their school username/password. Books overdue for more than 90 days will be marked as lost, and the student will be responsible for the full cost of the book. If students have questions about a library fine, please contact Mrs. Padfield at

    Overdue Books

    $.05 per school day

    Overnight/Reserve Books

    $1.00 per school day


    $1.00 per school day

    Damaged Books

    If books are damaged beyond repair, the student will be charged the cost of the book. If a book is in poor condition when the student checks it out, please ask the IMC staff member checking out the material to note this in the circulation records. The District understands normal wear/tear on books; however, certain conditions make it impossible for the District to use the book in the future. For example, any book that is wet (or has been wet and mold has been produced) cannot be returned to the shelves of the library.
