Will I be charged fines for items that I can't return because access to the library is suspended?


You are not required to return books during the COVID-19 outbreak, and fines should not accrue during this period.

The Libraries have attempted to suppress these notices, but some may still get sent automatically. If a fine/fee is generated on your library account during this period, please contact circinfo@yorku.ca and we will waive it. Your loans and fines/fees information can be accessed by signing into Omni using your Passport York credentials.

Books/other materials should be returned based on regular circulation policies once the Libraries fully reopen.

In the meantime, any patrons who wish to return books can use our book bin at the Keele campus. Consult this FAQ for more information.

If you have any other questions or would like a live chat with a Reference Librarian, please visit our Ask a Question web site.
