While COVID-19 restrictions are in place at Rhode Island College, the following will apply to renewals of Adams Library technology loans:
Up to 2 renewals will be allowed before technology items will be required to be returned. After the 1st renewal is granted, the technology item may be subject to recall. The patron's library account must remain current and in good standing in order to have renewals granted for technology items. If overdue fines have accrued on the library patron's account, the overdue fines must be paid before anymore technology loan checkouts.
If Dash and Dot are returned late, there is a $5 per day late fee.
If Dash and Dot are not returned or are returned in damaged condition, you will be billed $225 as a replacement fee. (The replacement fee for Dash is $150 and the replacement fee for Dot is $75)
