Overdue fines will not accumulate when a library is closed. You lose your borrowing rights, once your fines reach the limit of €15. You get your borrowing rights back after you have paid your overdue fines.
The replacement price for an item is determined by the price of a new copy. If a new copy is not available, the replacement price is determined separately. In these cases, the minimum prices are:
You can also replace material by providing a corresponding item to the library (excluding audiovisual material).
Top-up card prices are available at the libraries and in IT Services wiki.
Free for Haaga-Helia, Laurea and Metropolia students and staff. For other customers, according to the price list of the sending library, however a minimum of € 20 / item.
Fees are valid until further notice.
Renew your loans immediately. If you cannot renew your loans due to reservations or unpaid fines, return them to the nearest Metropolia library as soon as possible.
Unpaid fines accumulate to your outstanding payments. Once the sum reaches the fee limit (€15), your borrowing rights are suspended. You get your borrowing rights back once you have returned your loans and paid your overdue fines.
You can pay fees online. When you log in to your MetCat Finna account, you see the total balance of your fees and the fees that are payable online.
If your fees amount to 15 euros or more, your loaned item has reservations, or you have already renewed the loan 10 times, you cannot renew your loan. After you have paid the fines, you can renew the items which have no reservations and which you have renewed less than 10 times.
Payment is possible via Finnish online banks or by using credit cards (Visa or Mastercard). You cannot change the amount of the payment, therefore the amount must be paid fully. If the fee is less than 1 €, it cannot be paid online.
When paying overdue fees, remember to renew your loans as well. Then the same loans will not accrue more late fees. Payment does not automatically extend the loan period.
You can pay your library fees with debit and credit cards at all Metropolia campus libraries.
