For your To-Do list: Renew or return last semester's books before Jan. 11th

Published by Mark Bodnar

We've hit that magical time of year when semester-loan items borrowed last year from the SFU Library need to be returned or renewed!

If you borrowed or renewed a semester-loan item between July 31, 2015 and November 30, 2015, it is due next Monday (January 11, 2016). Fines and suspensions can be avoided by returning and/or renewing books before that date.

Renewals: Semester-loan items can be renewed online or by phone for the first three (3) renewals. An unlimited* number of renewals can be made in person (materials must be present) at the Loans/Circulation desks of any SFU library.

* RE: "Unlimited"... until someone else requests the item you have signed out!Returning
