Community Lending

The Greenfield Library extends lending privileges to alumni, town borrowers, and US Naval Academy faculty.

Alumni

Documented alumni (graduates of the college) who live within a 60 mile radius of Annapolis may be granted library borrowing privileges without a membership fee. Upon presentation of identification and completion of the alumni borrower agreement (available at the Circulation Desk), qualifying individuals will be issued a card that must be presented each time books are checked out.

Lending

Up to five books and lectures may be borrowed concurrently, for a loan period of 30 days; up to five audio materials can be checked out for 2 weeks; and up to five video materials can be checked out for one week. Interlibrary loan services are not available for alumni borrowers.

Renewals

Alumni wishing to renew materials can either bring items to the library for renewal or renew materials online through the library’s online catalog. Items can be renewed once online. The library does not accept renewals by phone or e-mail.

Recalls

Books requested by another patron must be returned within one week of notification. Notices will be sent through the mail, so please be sure your address is current with the library. Alumni cannot request items from other patrons.

Lost Fees

The library does not charge overdue fees for books but does charge a $1 per day for audio visual materials up to a maximum of $10. If an item becomes more than three weeks overdue, it will be considered lost and replacement charges will apply. If patrons find library materials that were lost and return the materials to the library, we will gladly refund the replacement cost, minus the $10 processing fee for materials returned within 90 days. Failure to return materials in a timely fashion may result in borrowing privileges being withdrawn.

For more information on any of these policies, please contact the associate library director by phone at 410-295-6927 or e-mail.

Town Borrowers

Adults who live within a 60 mile radius of Annapolis may be granted permission to borrow books. There is no charge for students enrolled in St. John’s continuing education programs during the semester in which they are enrolled. All other town borrowers are charged $45 per year or $15 per any four-month period. Upon presentation of identification and completion of the town borrower agreement (available at the Circulation Desk), qualifying individuals will be issued a card that must be presented each time books are checked out.

Lending

Up to five books may be borrowed concurrently, for a loan period of one month. Non-book materials (audiotapes, videotapes, etc.) are not available for loan. Interlibrary loan services are not available for community lending.

Renewals

Town borrowers wishing to renew books can either bring books to the library for renewal or renew materials online through the library’s online catalog. Books can be renewed once online. Items needed longer need to be brought to the library to extend the loan period. The library does not accept renewals by phone or e-mail.
