Return to Top


Library material is considered recalled when the user is notified that the material needs be returned to the Library (usually due to high demand for the item/special circumstances warranting the prompt return of the item). All library materials are subject to being recalled after the borrower has had the item for at least 14 days (sooner for Reserve items). This will result in a change to the item’s due date.

Recalled books must be returned without delay. Failure to return books that have been recalled will result in the suspension of borrowing privileges.

Once the recalled item is returned, the patron who placed the hold will be notified via email that the item is ready for pick up. The patron will then have three (3) days to pick up the item. If the item is not picked up on time, it will be returned to the shelves or made available to the next person on the waiting list, if applicable.
