Changes in the Library

We have two small changes to report for this upcoming semester. First, we will be opening at 10:00 a.m. on Fridays instead of at 9:00 a.m. This brings us in line with our start hour for Monday-Thursday. See the library hours on our Web page for details. Second, we are changing the checkout period for our circulating books from 90 days to 60 days. This should help the turn-around time for books that circulate frequently. As always, you may renew one time if a book you have checked out has not been requested by somebody else. See our policies page for more information.
