If you would like to recall a book that is out on loan, you may place a request for it at the Circulation desk. Books may be recalled after an initial loan period of seven days.  Borrowers will receive notice of the recall and will have seven days to return the item.  When the item is returned, patrons are notified via email that the recalled item is being held for them behind the Circulation desk. 

Patrons with overdue or billed items will not be able to request recalls.
