A library card, which is the student identification card, is required before books can be checked out. Books may be checked out for two weeks.  Books may be renewed by phone or in person. If a book is needed by another patron, a “hold” can be placed on the book.  When the book is returned, the patron will be notified by mail or telephone. Reference books and audiovisual material are to be used only in the LRC.

Overdue Books
Fines of $.25 a day, excluding weekends and college holidays, are charged for overdue books.  Overdue notices are sent by mail or e-mail every two weeks.

Lost Books
If books are lost or damaged, recovery cost must be paid before additional books can be borrowed. All accounts with the LRC must be cleared at the end of the semester.  Students will not be allowed to register for a new semester until all books are returned and all fines are paid.
