Yes, it is that time again.

In order to give items time to find their way back home (3 wk checkout, 2
wk renewal, plus transit time), borrowing to and from York Schools, Upper
Kennebec Valley Schools (RSU18), and Augusta Schools has been stopped as of
this evening.

This means that:

A) your patrons will not be able to request items that are held by only
those locations.  They will look available, but will not be requestable by
your patrons.  ONce the schools have closed for the summer, the items will
be unavailable, but for now, they're still using them!

B) if you have a book on your hold shelf right now that is from one of
those locations, it will give an error when you try to check out.  FOR THIS
ONCE, go ahead and override and check out the item AND set the due date to
May 29th (let the patron know that's the unusual due date and no renewals).
   1. Scan Barcode to check out. Error: "Loan rule says non-circulating"
   2. Click OVERRIDE button.
   3. Click Change Due Date button just above line with new checkout
(right-hand side, middle of the screen).
   4. Pick May 29th as the new due date.  Even if that's less than usual,
sorry.  It needs to get back in time, and you'll have to explain to the

Have I missed anything?
