Naropa faculty, students, and staff are able to recall materials from any library user if items have been checked out for 4 weeks or more. If an item is needed for a Naropa course reserve, it can be recalled immediately. If you have checked out an item and it is recalled, you will be notified by email and given a new due date.

There is a 30 day grace period for most overdue items. After 30 days, overdue fines will start accruing at $0.25 per day, per item. After an item is 60 days overdue (or after 8 days of being recalled and not returned), it is marked "assumed lost" and the patron is billed for the replacement cost + $25 processing fee. 

Certain items do accrue fines immediately following their due date: interlibrary loans ($0.50/day), reserve materials ($0.50/hr), and audiovisual equipment ($1.00/hr). 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).
