Circulation Policies @ LLCC

This guide reviews the circulation policies at Lincoln Land Community College Library.

Fines and Fees Policies

Lincoln Land Community College Library does not charge daily overdue fines on most items.  Please see below for our Fine and Restriction Policy. 

  • Course Reserve & Loanable Technology Overdue Fines: These fines are applied to overdue items from the Course Reserve or Loanable Technology collections. Fines range from $1.00 per hour to $15.00 per day, depending on the item.

Examples of items that may incur overdue fines include laptops, hotspots, calculators, phone chargers, anatomy models, and course textbooks.

  • Lost Item Replacement Fines: These fines are applied to items that are 35 or more days overdue.  If this happens, students are placed on a campus-wide restriction (see below).  Replacement charges are determined based on the Library's initial purchase price.  If the item is returned to us in good condition, all fines are waived and restrictions lifted.

To view the status of your Library Account, including any fines or overdue items, click the Login button at the top right of this page, enter your LLCC credentials, and select the dropdown arrow next to your name for more details.  You can also contact the LLCC Library Circulation desk at (217) 786-2354 or and we’ll be happy to assist you.    


Students are placed on campus-wide restriction if they fail to return library materials 35 days after the due date.  Restriction means that students cannot add, drop, or register for classes, receive grades for classes in which they are currently enrolled, obtain transcripts, or receive financial aid disbursements until the matter is resolved.

To remove a restriction, students must either return each overdue item to the LLCC Library or pay the Lost Item Replacement Fee.
