About the Library: Alumni Borrowing

Alumni Borrowing Rules

WHO MAY BORROW MATERIALS: Individuals who have graduated from Westfield State University may borrow under the Alumni Policy.

WHAT MAY BE BORROWED: Items from the Circulating Collection. All alumni are required to use ID cards to check out Library materials.

LOAN PERIOD: Books and certain other non-print materials may be borrowed for four weeks. Items can be renewed once for an additional four week term by calling 413-572-5231.

WHAT MAY NOT BE BORROWED FROM THE LIBRARY: Periodicals, Reference materials, and items on Reserve may be used in the Library only.

RECALL OF MATERIALS: All borrowed materials are subject to immediate recall. If an item you have borrowed is recalled, you are responsible for bringing it back to the Library immediately.

OVERDUE AND LOST MATERIALS:  Any item more than 28 days overdue will be considered lost. Lost materials will be billed at replacement cost plus a $15.00 nonrefundable processing fee. Lost material replacement charges are cancelled when the item is returned, but you still owe the $15 processing fee.  Additional materials may not be borrowed until outstanding fines and lost materials fees have been paid. Replacement and processing fees paid for lost library items cannot be refunded.
