Library books cannot be written in, and words cannot be underlined or highlighted.  This includes both books checked out from our general collections, and books borrowed through E-Z Borrow and Interlibrary Loan.  Damaged book and replacement costs may be applied for books damaged while checked out to you.

If you need to take notes in your books, the library recommends you purchase your own copies of the books or take notes on separate sheets of paper.
