Fines Amnesty on Overdue Books

The USIU-Africa Library and Information Center announces its amnesty program on overdue items. The amnesty period starts IMMEDIATELY to last until Saturday, September 30, 2023. This means that if you are holding library items that are past their return date and therefore have attracted a fine, you can return them and be cleared without having to pay a fine.

Students, faculty and staff wishing to return books can drop them off at the library during library open hours as per the schedule below:

  • Monday-Friday: 8.15 am – 9.00 pm
  • Saturday: 9.00 am – 6.00 pm
  • Sunday: 11.00 am – 5.00 pm
  • Public Holidays: CLOSED

During Semester Breaks:

  • Monday to Friday: 8.15 am – 5.00 pm
  • Saturday and Sunday: CLOSED
  • Public Holidays: CLOSED

Please note that the amnesty only covers overdue books that have been returned in good condition. Damaged or lost books will be subjected to the library’s Lost and Damaged Items Policy.

During the amnesty period, we will be happy to receive both monetary and non-monetary donations. Monetary donations will go towards the ‘Educate Your Own’ fund while non-monetary donations will go to identified communities around campus.
