8.3. Grace Periods

Grace Periods allow a patron extra time to an item without a fine before Fines begin to accrue.

Grace periods are included in the recurring fine rule that is set up for your location's Circulation Policies.

Once the grace period has passed, fines will tally to include the include the grace day(s).

Example: If an item circulates under a policy with a two day grace period, and the item is returned two days of the due date, there will be no fine. If it's returned on day three, the full fine (2 days of late fees) will be applied.
