Library Policies

It is easy to avoid overdue fines by renewing and returning the books you borrow.

Books and magazines can be checked out for two (2) weeks.

You must present valid identification (driver’s license or student ID).

You can renew five (5) times for up to ten (10) weeks total.

Items can be renewed by phone, email,  and in person.   A reply email will be sent to confirm the renewal.   Send your email to mmoon@brownmackie.edu.   Items do not need to be with you to renew them.    Items can be turned in or renewed at both the Main Campus and at Norwood.  You can call either library (Main: 513.672.1595 or Norwood 513.672.1596) to renew books. 

Overdue charges of ten (10) cents per day per item will accrue until items are renewed or checked in.  Overdue fines must be paid before checking out additional items.

You are responsible for any items that you have checked out and you will be charged replacement costs AND overdue fines for each item lost or not returned.

If you think you have returned a book, the librarian will be glad to do a shelf check to confirm its return.

Students with fines and lost item charges will have a hold placed on their accounts and transcripts.  Fines and replacement costs can be paid at either bookstore.

If you have any questions: PLEASE ASK ANY LIBRARIAN.  Not reading or understanding these policies is not an excuse.  Our head librarian, Melanie Moon, is the final arbiter of these policies.
