Overdues? No Worries! (UPDATED)

If you checked out GRCC Library materials due anytime this year, the due date has been extended (again) and materials are now due Tuesday August 18, 2020.  Any GRCC overdue fines have been waived.

If you checked out interlibrary-loaned books (from other MeL or RaiderLoan libraries),  the due dates are not GRCC’s to extend. When classes resume in person,  please return those items to us as soon as possible and any interlibrary loan overdue fines will be waived.
