The library is closed for the day and you realize you forgot to return your books and DVD's that are due. You're looking at those 'late' items wondering what options there are to avoid late charges. You can return your material in the parking lot book drops before we open for the next business day to take advantage of our grace period. The first book drop of the day uses the previous day's date. You will not incur a fine for material due the day before. Most items can go in the drop, only museum passes and Nooks need to be returned at the Circulation desk. Renewing online is another option. The system renews items by date, so all material due that day can be renewed before 11:59pm without a late fee. If you wait until the midnight hour, 12am, a fine is generated. Choose the option that best fits your schedule.
