Students, faculty, staff, and visitors each have different loan periods for the materials they check out.

Details about late, lost, or damaged materials: As of July 2021, Rod Library no longer charges daily late fees for library materials. However, a lost item replacement fee and a non-refundable processing fee for items that have reached the maximum level of overdue or damaged items will be issued. 

Most library items will reach maximum overdue one month past the due date. Most electronics and hourly check-outs will reach maximum overdue after one week

Upon return of maximum overdue items, patrons will receive a refund for the lost item replacement fee.   Please note that library users will not be issued a refund or allow replacements after one year from the due date. 

An exact replacement, in new condition, will be considered in place of the replacement fees for most items.  If an exact replacement item is provided and accepted by the library the user is still responsible for paying the non-refundable processing fee.  

Failure to return recalled items by their due dates may result in loss of library check-out privileges. Upon the return of recalled items, reinstatement of library borrowing privileges will occur.
