When a book is recalled from you

When someone requests one of your library books, you may need to return it earlier. You are guaranteed a minimum loan of 5 days.

  • The library will send a due date change and recall notice to your student email address.
  • Please return the requested book by the new date, which overrides the original due date.
  • Your borrowing privileges may be suspended if you do not return a requested item by the new due date.
