Summer loans for music CDs, DVDs, iPods

Posted May 26th, 2006 by Christie Moore

Take advantage of a few extra days when you borrow music CDs, DVDs, and iPods over the summer! Since the Lewis Music Library will be closed Saturdays and Sundays beginning Memorial Day weekend, these items can be borrowed for a longer period of time over the weekend. This means:

  • CDs and DVDs circulate for 3 days, but if you borrow them on a Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday, they are due the following Monday (by closing, 5 pm).
  • iPods circulate overnight, but during the summer an iPod borrowed on a Friday will be due on Monday.

The Lewis Music Library is located at 14E-109 and summer hours are Monday-Friday 11am – 5pm; Saturday-Sunday closed.
