The Library sends out courtesy email notifications for library items due to be returned within two days. The notifications are a courtesy only and non-receipt of an email notification is not a valid reason to waive fines. Notifications may fail to reach you due to factors beyond our control. You are responsible for returning or renewing loans on time regardless of receipt of email notifications.
