All library users are responsible for library materials charged to their assigned Pocket.  Borrowers who lose or fail to return material on due date or damage the loaned material are subject to charges.

Renew procedure:

  • To renew a book, borrowers should bring the book to the Circulation desk for renewal of the due date.
  • The desk assistant then:
    • Checks the due date files and withdraws the books and reissue the book.
    • Stamps the date on date due slip and the book card.

Give the book card to the borrower and let him sign all the information needed in borrowing books.
