Renewing Library Materials

Patrons may renew materials by bringing them to the Circulation Desk on the main floor of the library. Materials may also be renewed over the phone by calling (434) 223 - 7227 and reading the barcode number to the staff member on duty. 

Overdue Materials, Lost Items, and Fines:

Bortz Library does not charge fines for overdue materials. However, students and community patrons with overdue items are not allowed to check out additional items until the overdue materials are returned or renewed in person. Students with overdue items will be allowed to check out items on course reserve. 

Students who leave campus at the end of the year without returning their library materials will be billed for replacement costs. These charges may also be billed to student accounts. 

Patrons will be expected to pay replacement costs on all lost materials.
