What happens with my library items?

Monday, March 16th, 2020

We understand that these are very unique circumstances and Ford Library is supporting our students in these trying times. See the FAQ below.

If you have other questions not covered here, please email us:

What about my items that are due/overdue/coming due?
All due dates are being extended to 05/07/20, with more renewals an option depending on circumstances at that time.

What about my late fines?
All fines from this time period are being waived.

My item won’t allow me to renew it?
We will be removing the limitations for renewals of Ford items. In the meantime, if you receive a notice and can’t renew online, reply to the message and we will take care of it for you.

I need a reserve textbook/e-textbook for my class. How do I find them online?
Follow this link, where our library staff have compiled links to finding e-versions of your textbooks.

I’m bored and need something fun to read. What do I do?
Watch our awesome Reference librarian, Jane Day, show you around our fun resources, from video streaming, to WSJ & Barron’s online, to OverDrive. Watch her recorded Zoom session here.

If you are looking for more casual reads and have a physical address in Durham County, you can sign up for a temporary library card at Durham County Public Library and browse their huge collection of fiction & nonfiction. Sign up for a public library card here.
