About Those Library Books . . .

May 4th, 2015 by jimm wetherbee in Announcements

If you still have books checked out from the library, please remember that when you have finished that last paper return the books you borrowed to the library.

If you don’t return your books bad things will happen. You will charged to replace the books. You won’t get your grades. If you are a senior, you won’t graduate. Not returning your books can be a hassle.

The library staff isn’t trying to come down hard, but Wingate needs the books back so that in the future, students  will have the opportunity you have had to learn, become more enlightened, or at least be able to finish that last term paper.

So please remember, books are due on or before May 12th. You can check which books are still listed as being checked out by you from the Online Catalog. If there is any discrepancy, please visit us at the Circulation Desk or call 704.233.8089.
