About the Library
Library Check-Out Policy
Regular library books, juvenile books, curriculum laboratory materials, videos, cassettes, and CD's may be checked out for four weeks. Materials may be renewed for four more weeks use.
Reference Books and periodicals (magazines and journals) are NOT checked out except by faculty members. Photo copies may be made of articles being used for research on our black and white copier for 5 cents a page.
Most Reserve Materials may be checked out for one or two hours use and are NOT TO LEAVE THE LIBRARY! A few reserve materials are checked out for 3 days or longer.
Library Fine Policy
Materials not returned to the library on time or not renewed will be charged a fine. There will be a one week grace period before fines begin. If the materials are not returned by the 7th day overdue, each item will be fined .25 cents per day until returned, with a maximum fine of $10.00 per item. Fines can be avoided by renewing the check-out period on the items! All fines will be charged to the student's account and are to be paid at the Business Office.
Reserve Materials will be charged $1.00 per hour fine for hourly reserve materials that are over due. There will be $1.00 a day fine for reserve materials that are checked out by the day or week
Lost Book Fees
There will be a flat fee of $50.00 charged for each library material that is lost. A date will be set for all materials to be due at the end of each semester. Materials not returned by this date, unless other arrangements are made with library circulation staff, will be considered lost and billed a charge of $50.00 per item.
Levitt Library also has a color copier. It costs 25 cents to make a color copy. When students print to this copier, the charges go on their account. The color copier is located on first floor in the library office. If you need to make a color copy, check with the library staff.
