Borrowing Regulations
Borrower's Responsibility 
  • Don't lend your card to someone else. It belongs only to you. You are responsible for the materials borrowed with it. 
  • Return all borrowed material on time. Borrowers who have overdue material will not be entitled to additional borrowing privileges until all delinquent items are returned. 
  • In case borowed materials are returned late, are lost or damaged, pay the required charges. An individual who owes the library money forfeits his/her right to borrow material until the past due account is settled with the library.
