Fines on Overdue Items for Faculty and Staff
Faculty and Staff (including TAs) are not charged overdue fines.  However, they are responsible for paying for replacement (plus $5.00 processing fee per item) for lost, damaged, or unreturned materials (including those charged by proxy).

Paying Fines
Fines can be paid to a member of the Scheider Music Library staff, at the circulation desk.  Staff members can print you a list of your fines, as well as issue a receipt for your payment.  We accept cash (exact change) and personal checks (payable to Texas State University-San Marcos.)  We cannot accept credit card payments.

Lost Materials
Any borrower losing an item belonging to the library must pay a replacement fee (the current cost of the item), plus a processing fee ($5.00).  Overdue fines may be waived (at the librarian's discretion) if the borrower reports the loss in a timely manner.  If the borrower finds and returns the item at a later time, a refund will be processed (minus processing fee).
