You may not lend CTBL materials to other people.
Loan Period for Audio and Large Print 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 6 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. If you could listen to or read and return these books in a timely fashion, other
patrons will not have to wait as long.
Loan Period for Braille
The loan period for Braille books is 2 months from the date the patron receives the book.
Loan Period for Magazines

CTBL recorded magazines and newsletters that arrive in plastic mailing containers should be
returned to CTBL. They count as a book on your account and need to be checked in.
