Paying Fines

Overdue fines can be paid at the Haskell Library Circulation desk or mailed to the Library. Send payment of fines/fees payable to the University of Pittsburgh to the address below:

University of Pittsburgh at Titusville

Haskell Library

504 East Main St.

Titusville, PA 16354

Borrower's privileges will be suspended/blocked when fines reach $25.00 or an item borrowed goes to LOST status. A block at one University Library System (ULS) Library will be treated the same at all ULS Libraries. Please renew or return your library materials on or before the due date.

The library e-mails overdue notices to the borrower's Pitt e-mail account as a courtesy only. The University Libraries are NOT responsible for non-delivery or delayed delivery of the notices due to e-mail/technical problems. The first overdue notice is sent after the items are due. The fifth notice is sent 45 days after the due date, at which time the patron's borrowing priviledges are suspended. When overdue library materials are returned, the online library system generates a notice for the total amount of fines and this is e-mailed to the patron. If the materials are not returned, the item is eventaully designated "Lost" and a bill is created and sent to the borrower. This bill includes replacement costs, fines owed, and processing fees for each item Lost.
