Loan Period for Books
You will not be charged a fine for overdue materials; however, persistent failure to abide by
the Loan Policy may result in suspension of service for up to 6 months. Overdue reminders are
sent out after 3 months.
The loan period begins from the date the patron receives the book. The length of the loan period
for individual patrons is 1 month, for students 2 months and institutional deposit collections 3
months. If you have not finished reading or listening to your books, you can renew by extending
the loan period. Please call the library.
We would like to remind patrons that the newest books are the most popular and always have a
waiting list. We encourage patrons to listen to and return these books in a timely fashion, other
patrons will not have to wait too long.
