Borrowing Policy

Lending Policies

Lending policies vary according to patron group and material type. Ask the Circulation Desk for more information.  Reference books and print periodicals may only be used in the library.

Overdue and Lost Materials

Borrowers will be notified by email when they have overdue library materials. Students are expected to check their STAC email for overdue notices. Students will be charged fines for overdue materials. Fines vary according to the type of material. Ask at the Circulation Desk for specific information

Students will be billed for lost library materials. The charge for lost materials, per item, includes a $25.00 processing fee, the fines accrued up to $5.00 per item, and the total replacement cost of the item. If no replacement cost can be determined, the library will levy a charge based on the type of item (paperback, hardcover, children's hardcover, video, etc) 

In addition, graduating students; diplomas may be withheld until their library materials are returned or the charges are paid.  Ask at the Circulation Desk for details.

On-Site Borrowing Between WALDO Libraries

We regret that STAC students are not allowed to borrow on the premises at other WALDO libraries, except for Nyack College and Domincan College.  Please ask about our Internlibrary Loan Services, which provide students, faculty and staff with access to the collections of libraries worldwide.
