-Each library system within PINES chooses the Max Fine Level they wish to use for overdue fines. Most library systems use $5.00, but a few use a higher amount (see the PINES Circulation Matrix). If the Max Fine Level is set to $5.00, then overdue fines on an item will accrue each day the item is overdue until the fines reach $5.00 and will then stop. If the patron has multiple items checked out and overdue, then the fines on each one will accrue until each of them reach $5.00.+Each library system within PINES chooses the Max Fine Level they wish to use for overdue fines.

 If an item is not returned and marked as either Lost or Long Overdue, the overdue fines are removed and the patron is billed for the cost of the item instead. Some library systems will also charge a non-refundable processing fee if this happens. If an item is not returned and marked as either Lost or Long Overdue, the overdue fines are removed and the patron is billed for the cost of the item instead.
