Loan Periods for Emeritus Faculty and Staff

Rod Library does not charge late fees on library materials.   Once an item has reached its maximum overdue limit, patrons will be billed a replacement fee.  If a patron has an overdue item that has been recalled, all borrowing privileges will be blocked.  Borrowing privileges will be immediately reinstated once the recalled material is returned.  Items may be returned up to one year after the original due date to receive a refund for the replacement fee.  Refunds are not given if an item is returned over one year past the due date.
