Just a reminder as people start to ask about having items renewed….
Library systems will NOT be renewing items in bulk any longer.
Any items taken out during or before December 2020 MUST BE RETURNED by their due date. If patrons wish to still have these items, they will need to bring them back physically, and have them returned then they can take them out again.
We are moving back to regular item policies for these things, where people only get to keep books for a maximum of ONE YEAR. (three renewals.)
Any patrons who took items out in this time frame were sent a notice over the summer informing them that A) if an item was recalled it needs to be returned in the 7 day time frame and B) that we are no longer doing bulk renewals and items loaned in Dec 2020 or prior to Dec 2020 needed to be returned to the library by their due date of mid December, 2021.
I’ll be making the new End of Term date in Alma today, so items that are allowed to be renewed (items that have been on loan for less than one year) can be, (and of course staff/Faculty have indefinite renewals) but all other items must be physically returned to the Library or they will go to LOST.
This is the notice they were sent in August.
Let me know if you have any questions!
