Fines and Renewals

In recognition of the extraordinary circumstances, overdue and recall fines have not be charged for books, DVDs, or equipment. Books from the stacks can be renewed as another library patron does not place a recall. To learn more, visit CUNY's statement on the continuity of library services.
