Library Policies

Borrowing Books
Books may be borrowed from McGrath Library for three weeks, excluding reference books, which are for library use only. A valid student ID is required to check out books. Students may not check out more than five books per day or have more than 15 books out at the same time.

Books may be renewed only once. This may done in person or by telephone.  Books will not be renewed if another student has placed a hold on them.. If the book you are looking for is not on the shelf, check at the information desk. If the book has been checked out, you may ask that it be held for you on its return. We will notify you when it is available.

Fines for overdue books are 25 cents per book per day. You will be notified if another student has requested the overdue book. When the book has a hold on it and is overdue, the fine increases to $1 per day if the book is not returned after you have received notification. Borrowing privileges are withdrawn for students owing $5 or more in fines, or whose books are two or more weeks overdue. Grades are withheld and transcripts are not sent out for students with outstanding library debts.
