Book Checkout Policy
Students may check out four books at a time, which are due in 21 days. Students may receive permission to check out more than four books in special circumstances, such as Winter Break or a large, in-depth project. Unless a hold has been placed on a book, renewals are encouraged. We do not issue fines for overdue books, but students must pay the replacement cost for lost or severely damaged books.
