Library users are responsible for ensuring that all library materials are returned in good condition, that is, in the same condition as when the items were checked out. These procedures apply to KU-owned library materials and to Interlibrary Loan items borrowed from another library. Do not remove the paper jackets or other paper work from Interlibrary Loan items. Certain library materials are vulnerable to damage in a book return because of heat, climate, and space conditions. Please do not place them in the Walk-up Book Returns.

A woman has brought back a book to a New Zealand library 67 years after it was due to be returned. But on Thursday a woman returned the book to a startled librarian at Auckland library and asked how much her late fines would be for returning the book 24, days past its due date. The woman would not incur any late fees, said Cornelius, as she was a child when the book was checked out and children were not charged late fines at the library. An original checkout slip on the back of the book states that fines for overdue books would be charged at three pence for the first week, and one penny a day for every day following. Auckland library holds three copies of Myths and Legends of Maoriland, none of which are allowed to leave the library. The book is currently being examined to determine its condition, but the special collections division at Auckland library said it did not think the book had any monetary value.
