Checking Out A Book

To check out a book, bring it to the Circulation Desk. In the St. Paul library the Circulation Desk is located on the second floor. You will need a valid Metropolitan State University identification card to check out books.

How Long
The borrowing period for students is 28 days for books, 7 days for videos.

Return or Renew
The Circulation Desk is also the place to renew or return books. You can also do this online by clicking the View Your Account link on the library homepage.

Hold Item
If the book you want is checked out, you can ensure that you will be next in line to get it by placing a hold on the item. First, click on the title of the item to view the detailed record. Then, click on Place a Hold. You will then be prompted to enter the 14-digit barcode number off of the back of your Metropolitan State University ID Card and your last name (as the password).
