A current library card must be presented for any circulation transaction. Library materials must be checked out before they are removed from the building.
- The patron can ask for renewals in Renfro Library, with or without the item in hand.
- It is also possible for a patron to renew his/her books online by going to MHU Catalog, then click on “Your Library Account” to access his/her own account.
- An item can also be renewed over the phone.
- Click on the Request link at the top of the screen above the book information. The patron will then enter their name and MHU ID #. They will also enter a date to cancel the hold. Once completed then click submit.
You may return items at the circulation desk or the book drop next to the front entrance of the library. The book drop is always open.
If an item is returned and noticeably damaged, there will be a cost for repair or replacement. The cost will vary depending on the severity of the damage. Cost for minor damage will be a $10 processing fee, and severe damage will be the replacement cost of the item.
Renfro library produces overdue notices several times a week. Library patrons will receive notices through their university email account. Notices are a courtesy and failure to receive one does not excuse penalties associated with library materials.
