Borrowing Privileges For Neighbors Of The College

Borrowing Materials
Neighbors of the College seeking Guest Borrower privileges should contact the President's Office at 860-2733. Neighbors may borrow library materials by presenting their current Champlain College Neighbor ID. Neighbors are responsible for all items charged out on their card. Lost or stolen cards should be reported immediately to the Library. All neighbors are advised for their own protection not to loan their cards to other persons or to give materials charged to their accounts to any other person. Since there is only one card per family, neighbors should bring additional family member’s information to the MIC circulation desk, so we can note who will have borrowing privileges for each account. Library privileges include borrowing books from collections such as New Books, Main Stacks, Children’s Collection, and Teaching and Learning. Questions about library borrowing may be directed to the Manager of Circulation at (802) 865-6489.

Loan Policies
Neighbors may take out a maximum of five items at any given time, with a circulation period of two weeks. Neighbors who have reached their item maximum will be unable to check out further materials. Items may be renewed by physically bringing the book into the library. If the book does not have a hold on it, the person may check it out for an additional two weeks. Books are subject to recall, so that high-demand items may be accessible to the largest number of patrons. Neighbors receiving a recall notice should return the requested items within 3 days.

Overdue and Lost Items
Neighbors are responsible for returning or renewing all items charged to their account on or before the date on which they are due. Neighbors who have overdue items charged to their account will be unable to check out further items until the book is returned or renewed. While the Library will make reasonable efforts to contact patrons with overdue materials, it is the responsibility of the patron to know when materials are due and to return them promptly. The Library does not charge fines per day for overdue books. However, borrowing privileges are revoked and neighbors with overdue items will not be able to borrow any additional materials.
Any books not returned or renewed on time are considered lost and the amount of the full replacement cost for each item will be billed, unless the item is returned or renewed. The replacement cost for books is $75.00 per item.
