The Library, like most libraries, charges small fines to encourage patrons to return items, so that others can use them. The fine is $0.25 per day for all items, but fines are not charged for the Lord’s Day, when the Library is closed.

Fine letters are sent out periodically, produced automatically by the library system we use.

If you receive an overdue or fine notice which you believe is in error, contact the Library Staff by emailing If you have books due or overdue and do not anticipate coming to the Seminary in the near future, you should carefully box the items and mail them by “Media Mail” rate to the Library at 7418 Penn Avenue, Pittsburgh, Pa 15208. Alternatively, you can renew the items online.
