Good Morning,

In order to give items time to find their way back to the schools (3 wk
checkout, plus transit time), borrowing to and from York Schools, Upper
Kennebec Valley Schools (RSU18), and Augusta Schools has been stopped.

This means that:

A) your patrons will not be able to request items that are held by only the
above locations.

B) if you have a book on your hold shelf right now that is from one of the
above 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 30th  (let the patron know the reason for the unusual due date and that
there can be no renewals).

**Steps**

   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 30th 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
   patron.

Please send items back promptly so they arrive at their home libraries in
time.

Thank you,
Lynn
