All library materials currently checked out must be returned on or before 6PM on Wednesday, December 9th. Materials placed in the book drop after this date will continue to accrue late charges until the item(s) are checked in. Following are additional important reminders for faculty and staff regarding end of semester and winter break loan periods:
- Part-time faculty and employees will not be able to check out library materials until the beginning of the spring 2011 semester.
- Library materials for full-time faculty and staff must be returned by January 10th, 2011.
All CPCC Libraries are extending a “1 for 1”amnesty deal for overdue library materials. Now, thhrough December 8th, all you have to do is bring in one canned food item for each overdue library item that you return and we’ll waive your fine! Fees for lost and/or damaged materials do not apply.
Don’t have any fines? Great! We still welcome donations to help provide food for those in need. Hurry up and take advantage of this once a year, sweet deal while supporting a worth cause.
SOC (short on cash) or OOC (out of cash)? Don’t worry! If you have outstanding library fines from overdue materials and/or want to help those less fortunate than you in this recovering economy, we’ve got a deal for you! During the library’s Amnesty Week, starting Nov 15, 2010, we are offering a “1-for-1 deal” as part of “fine free forgiveness days.” Throughout the week, fines accrued from overdue items (e.g., books, DVDs, videos, CDs, etc.) will be forgiven when you:
- return overdue library materials to any CPCC library along with a canned good or non-perishable food for each item returned
- bring in a canned good or other non-perishable food item for each previously returned overdue item for outstanding unpaid fines
- return items in good condition
This deal excludes replacement fees for lost and damaged materials. Also, for safety, please do not donate items in glass jars or containers.
Library materials and food item donations will be received at all campus libraries during that week. Food contributions from students, faculty and staff without current fines or overdue materials are also welcomed. All food items collected will be donated to the local Loaves & Fishes charitable organization. Lastly, Loaves & Fishes has identified priority needs. If you have any of the following items, please include them in your donation:
- Canned Fruit
- 100% Juice
- Pork and Beans
- Peanut Butter
- Canned Meat
Get busy looking for misplaced library materials. Don’t miss this opportunity to help yourself while helping others!
