All circulating library materials are subject to recall after 4 weeks. If an item is needed for reserve, it can be recalled immediately. If you have a recalled item, you will be notified by phone or email and given a new due date.

We do not charge overdue fines, except for interlibrary loans ($0.50/day), reserve materials ($0.50/hr) and audiovisual equipment ($1.00/hr). However, after an item is 60 days overdue (or after 8 days of being on recall), it is marked "assumed lost" and patron is billed for the replacement cost + $25 processing fee. We will suspend your privileges until your bills are paid or the items are returned. Large fines are filed with the Registrar's Office and will prevent registration, graduation, and receipt of transcripts.

Current Naropa students can also borrow audiovisual equipment from the library.

Summer Writing Program students who are not enrolled in a Naropa degree program have a loan period of one week for all materials, no renewals, with a limit of 5 items total. (The limit of 3 items per audiovisual format still applies).
