Lending Guidelines

Goodbye Overdue Fines

Library Checkout Fast Facts

  • All library materials will be checked out for three weeks.
  • Three days before the due date, library materials will be automatically renewed for an additional three weeks if the item allows renewals and there are no holds on it. You will receive a notice that your item(s) has been renewed, as well as alerting you if some of your items did not get renewed. This automatic renewal will occur a maximum of two times.
  • After the two automatic renewals, you will need to return your library materials. We are no longer extending due dates periodically.
  • If an item is not returned within 30 days of the due date, you will be charged for the cost of the item. This cost will be waived upon the return of the item, and no later fees will be assigned.
