Borrowing Privileges

North Parkers

Students, faculty, and staff with a current North Park ID may use it to check out library materials.

Partner Schools

Anyone affiliated with ACTS, I-Share, or the ATLA Reciprocal Borrowing Program may use their school ID to borrow items from our library. I-Share members may also request to have Brandel Library materials delivered to their home libraries.


Item Type Fine
Books $0.25/day
CDs/DVDs $1.00/day
Course Reserves $0.05/minute

Lost Items

We will bill you the replacement cost plus a $15 processing fee for any items you lose. We consider an item lost once it reaches sixty days overdue.

Fine Limits

The fine limit is $30 for students and $7.50 for guests. You may not check out library materials if you've reached the fine limit.


You may renew books three times, and CDs/DVDs once. Log in to your library account to renew items.
