Checking Out Print Books – Spring 2021

We have updated our policies to reflect the needs of both hybrid and virtual learners.

Hybrid Learners:  Students will have access to the print collection on each of the days they are in the building for learning. Although the physical space remains closed for now, you will place items on HOLD in the library catalog. Research books will be delivered at the start of the day and pleasure reading books will be delivered before afternoon dismissal. See Hybrid Library Materials for more details. This will also be covered in classes with our librarian.

Virtual Learners: Students may continue to put print books “on hold” for library staff to checkout to them. See our directions for How to Checkout Print Books During Distance Learning for more details! Students have reviewed these steps in library sessions with our librarian. Physical books checked out from the library will be available every week, starting on Thursday mornings. Notices for pick-up will be sent the evening before. If you are unable to retrieve them on Thursday or Friday, they will be placed back by Door 1 the following Tuesday and Wednesday, while the front office is staffed. Please see Library Contactless Checkout Routine if you need a reminder. We ask that you be mindful of arrival and dismissal times and avoid cross-traffic with in-person students and staff.
