In this case, the original borrower must confirm the return of the book by calling the person in charge of returns at the library. The original borrower will still be held responsible if the book goes missing or is damaged when being returned through the mail or by another person.
  • Graduating students must return all their checked-out books no later than one (1) month prior to their graduation date.
