Books are due two weeks from the day they are checked out. Students may renew books if they have not finished reading their books by the due date. Students are encouraged to bring back their books as soon as they are finished reading them so that others may enjoy them. No fines will be incurred for overdue books, but students are responsible for paying for lost or books damaged beyond repair.
