*Loan periods listed are for items from the Main Library's general collection. Reference books, periodicals, and certain other materials do not circulate. Items from the Core Collection, Marjorie I. Mitchell Multimedia Center, and items on Reserve for a class have shorter loan periods.
When a patron's WildCARD is set to expire within their normal loan period, the due date on the materials will be the same as the WildCARD's expiration date.
Please note that the due date for a book may be shortened if the item is recalled by another user. Patrons are notified by e-mail or mail of the new due date, and fines will apply for items not returned by the new date at the rate of one dollar per day. See Recall Policy section for more information.
If a patron's fines and fees total reaches or exceeds $100*, their borrowing privileges are automatically blocked. When an account is blocked, the patron is unable to check out new items or renew any items they have already checked out.
*All patrons are blocked at $100, except for Evanston Resident borrowers who are blocked at $50.
