  Borrower Responsibility

Unpaid accounts will be sent to a collection agency at which time the return of overdue material will not be accepted and your library privileges will be canceled. Bills sent to collection must be settled with the collection agency or with Mohawk College's Accounting Department.

To borrow items, visit the circulation desk at any participating library and present your student ID (ONE Card). Please note that additional ID may be required in order to verify your personal information. Loan periods, fines, etc. are determined by the lending library.
