You are responsible for replacing any unreturned materials.

The Library offers courtesy alerts to cardholders who have provided a valid email address on their patron record.  A second overdue notice or phone call is placed approximately 2 weeks after an item becomes overdue. We send out courtesy letters after an item is six weeks overdue and will invoice you for materials after six months. Borrowing privileges are suspended for users who have been sent a second overdue notice for any currently checked out item.

The Library has a convenient book drop at the front entrance that is available 24 hours.
