Update about Book Check-Ins during the Pandemic

Hello everyone! We wanted to make a quick post just to clarify something with check-outs and check-ins during the COVID-19 pandemic. If you turn your books in on their due date, they may show up as late in the computer system for a few days. This is only due to the fact that we have to quarantine the books for four days currently due to the pandemic; when they are checked in, they will be checked in for the date we received them, so no late fees will be incurred on your account due to that and there will be no obstructions. Thank you everyone for your patience with us!

We hope you enjoyed these videos, we still have a few more from around the city we will be presenting in the next couple weeks!
