To check out books from Roberts-LaForge
When you present your Dancing Rabbit card along with a photo ID (such as a driver’s license) at Roberts-LaForge Library, a member of our Circulation staff will create an account for you and you will be issued a DSU library card. The DSU library card is non-transferable and you must present your card and photo ID each time you borrow materials. You are personally responsible for returning all of your checked out materials to Roberts-LaForge Library.
While Roberts-LaForge Library welcomes the use of any resources in its collections, your Dancing Rabbit membership entitles you to check out books from the main collection as well as some Government Document materials. The Dancing Rabbit membership does not allow you to check out
The checkout period for most books is three (3) weeks for all patrons, and renewals are granted providing there are no other patron requests for the library materials. You may request a renewal in person at the Circulation Desk or by telephone at 662-846-4430. After the second renewal, the item(s) must be presented at the Circulation Desk to be turned in or renewed.
Other important features of our Circulation Policies are Recalls and Fines. Library books are subject to being recalled after they have been checked out at least ten (10) days. If the Circulation Department recalls a book you have checked out, a new due date will be assigned and you will be notified by e-mail. Fines are assessed on materials not returned by the new due date.
If you keep library materials past the due dates assigned for them, you will accrue fines ($0.30 per day/per item). The library that issued your Dancing Rabbit card will assist Roberts-LaForge
Books that are declared lost or kept over thirty (30) days past the due dates assigned for them will be billed as lost. If you should lose a book, you would be billed for the replacement cost plus any accrued fine plus an $18 handling and cataloging fee.
Any patron who is determined to have abused his/her Dancing Rabbit membership will have his/her Dancing Rabbit card voided by the director of the issuing library.
