What Is A Rental?

Limited highlighting and writing in the rented textbooks is permitted.  Rental books are used for a period of time and must be returned afterwards.

How do I know when the book is due?
-The rental books are due two weeks after the course is completed.   This will give extra time, if needed, for homework assignments, etc.    There is a listing of when your rentals are due under the discipline in Adult Studies.  

Where do I bring the book for the return?
