Patron Responsibilities

Library patrons are responsible for returning borrowed materials in the same condition as when it was checked out. Borrowers may not write in books, turn down page corners, or use “post-it”-type notes/flags. Borrowers are financially responsible for any damage that occurs while material is checked out to them. If library materials are lost, damaged or stolen the patron is liable for the replacement charge, the processing fee, and a non-refundable billing fee plus any non-refundable overdue fines accrued.

Borrowers are responsible for knowing the date material is due and returning (or renewing) it promptly. Fines are charged for materials returned after the due date.

Checked-out material will be recalled if requested by another library user. The original due date may be adjusted to an earlier date. Recalled items must be returned promptly. Borrowers should be aware that materials may be recalled at any time including; breaks, exam periods, summer, and during sabbatical leaves. To avoid problems please consider returning non-critical material before leaving campus.

Patrons are encouraged to track the due dates using the My CBBcat option from the Accounts tab on each library web page.
