We will not be accepting returns of materials at this time.
Have a book out that’s due or overdue? Don’t worry about it! Please hang on to it until our closure is over. We will try to renew everyone’s account, but if you get a notice, do not worry.
Remember– we do not have overdue fines.
Stay safe, everyone.
