Students may check out up to two (2) books for two (2) weeks at a time. If a student is not finished with their books at that time, they can renew their books for an additional two weeks. There are no overdue fines for late materials, but students are urged to return their books when they are finished with them. If a student loses or damages a library book, they will be charged a replacement fee equivalent to the price of the book. Reference materials are not available for check-out, but they can be used in the library. All books and materials must be turned into the circulation desk.
Staff may check out books as well as audio/visual materials for months at a time. Staff may also check out DVDs for up to 1 month. All materials must be returned to the circulation desk.
