RENEWALS

RECALLS

All resource materials checked out may be recalled by the library manager. Recalled materials should be returned within 48 hours of notification.
 

OVERDUES

After an item is three weeks overdue, borrowers will be billed with the replacement fee and a bar will be applied to their record, blocking students from registering for classes and obtaining transcripts. When the replacement fee is paid,  or item is returned,  all charges and bars will be removed. Library users who have over due materials or owe the library money will not be able to borrow any more materials until their record is cleared.

DAMAGED AND LOST MATERIALS

Borrowers are responsible for the return and care of all materials checked out on their identification. Noticeable damage should be documented with library staff BEFORE checking out materials. Library materials which are returned damaged are subject to charges based on the cost of repairing the item or on the lost cost if beyond repair. Borrowers who report lost items will be charged a fee based on the replacement or paid cost of the lost item. Library Services will refund lost charges paid, if items are found and returned in good condition.
 

RETURNS

Library materials being returned should be placed in one of the return drop boxes at the FVTC Appleton Library. You may also return items to one of the FVTC Outreach Sites
