How do I pay a library fine?

The CSI Library charges fines for lost, damaged, and overdue materials. Students who have outstanding library fines will have a Bursar stop placed on their account. Bursar stops can only be removed after the fine is paid in person at the Bursar’s Office (2A-105). Questions regarding library fines should be directed to the library’s Circulation Desk (718.982.4011).
