Renew Books

To renew books and other items, you can stop by the circulation desk and re-check out your items or call 857-3925 and renew them via telephone.  You may leave a message on the answering machine if no one is available to take your call.

There are a number of tools available for subscribing to and reading feeds. Here are a few examples:

Each tool has its own specific instructions for adding feeds, but the process is usually as simple as pasting in the feed's address or selecting from a menu.
