Borrowing Items From the Library:

Students may have up to six items checked out at any one time. There are some exceptions for students enrolled in Honors courses.

Faculty and staff may have up to ten items checked out at any one time.

Non-students as well as TexShare Card students from other colleges may have two items checked out at any one time.

Community Library Cards:

Library users from the community may secure a non-student library card at the circulation desk. There is a $5.00 per year fee for a non-student library card. The borrower will be held responsible for all library materials checked out under their card.


All users of the library are subject to fines on items returned after their due date. Fines are $0.25 per day for each regular checkout item not returned on time.  Fines for overdue reserve items are $3.00 per day.

Fines shall accumulate to a maximum of $10.00 for regular items and $40.00 for reserve items, until the material is returned or reported lost. Fines on library materials continue to accrue when the library is open, even if classes are not being held.
