Due Dates and Late Fees 

You do NOT need to come to campus to renew library materials. You can renew online using your library card number and PIN. For more information please see How do I renew the items on my account? . If you need any assistance  please  contact us via email or chat.

Late fees: 

The Keyano College Library does not charge overdue fees to Keyano College staff and students for items borrowed from our collection. Please note that items borrowed from other institutions may result in overdue fees being added to your library account.

In the case of lost or damaged books, a financial hold may be placed on a student account. When the outstanding items are returned to the library, or the replacement fee has been paid, your account will return to good standing. If you have questions or concerns about a financial hold placed on your account,  contact us via email or chat.

For more information, please see our Borrowing Policies section. 


Borrowed material can be returned in person during our regular open hours or through the book drop located outside the library doors. Any large items can be returned to the security desk  located at the College's main entrance and they will inform us that it has been returned. All fines for Keyano College items will be waived upon return. 

If you are self-isolating, please do not return your items until following the end of your self-isolation period.
