Guest Library Card Responsibilities

When a patron accepts or purchases a library card, they are entering into a borrowing agreement with the Library. The patron agrees to abide by all the rules and regulations of the Library and agrees to accept the penalties for failure to abide by those rules. The guest patron is responsible for all materials charged by the use of their library card. Should the library card be lost or stolen, the guest patron is responsible for notifying the Service Desk at Kresge Library. There is a $2.00 charge for replacing a Library card.

Failure to receive overdue notices does not in any way relieve patrons of the obligation to return material and/or pay accrued fine and fee charges.
