Items may be renewed twice.
Patrons are limited to three DVDs, CDs, or Playaways. There is no limit on book checkouts.
Text Message Overdue Notification:
You can receive library overdue notices as text messages (SMS) on your phone. These brief messages will not include all details like titles or due dates, but will give you the Library’s phone number to renew your items. The Library does not charge a fee for this service, but text message charges from your cell phone carrier may apply. To sign up for text message overdue notices, ask at the Circulation Desk. Patrons can opt-out of text message overdue notices at any time by notifying the CSI Library by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 208-732-6500.
When items become overdue by seven days, a first overdue notice will be sent to the patron, with a second notice following seven days later. After another week, a final notice will be sent. At the time the item is one month overdue, a bill for replacement charges will be sent to the patron. If the item is still not returned, a letter of intent (via certified mail) will be sent to the patron informing them that their account (with a $10 excessive late fee per item) will be turned over to a collection agency if the item is not returned by a specified date (usually two weeks). After the deadline has passed, the account will be turned over to a collection agency.
Any students who do not return items at the end of the semester will have a hold placed on their student records by the library.
