Want to continue reading your book? Swing by the library or send us an email to renew if you need additional time! No need to bring the book.

Consideration of Others 
Please be mindful of library material due dates, and that other students may be looking to borrow the material that you have checked out.

Speak to the library staff if there are special circumstances or if you need assistance. 

Lost or Damaged Books
