Q: How do library fines and holds work?


A library fine, along with a hold, will appear on your account if you have overdue materials.

Fines can be paid by cash, check, credit card, or debit card by visiting the AskUs desk on the first floor of the library in person, or by calling (423) 439-4307. Fines cannot be paid online or with ID Bucs.

Once an item is returned and the fine is paid, holds will be removed within 48 hours.

To inquire about a fine on your account, visit the Ask Us desk on the first floor of the Sherrod Library or call (423) 439-4307
