Borrowing Privileges: High Technology High School Students  

Currently enrolled High Technology High School (HTHS) students are eligible to borrow materials, and use the resources on-site or remotely via Internet and network connections.

Library ID Card Required  

As a HTHS student, you must obtain a Brookdale Library identification card to use the resources at the Bankier Library. A library barcode is pre-printed on the identification card. No other identification card is acceptable for library transactions. With your Brookdale Library identification card, you can borrow materials, access the library databases from off campus, and renew books online.

Loan Periods  

HTHS Students may borrow a maximum of 20 items. The loan period is 28 days. The staff at the Information Desk and Circulation Desk at 732/224-2935 will be able to provide specific details on which items may be borrowed, how many, and for how long.

Exceptions will be considered on an individual basis. Inquire at the Help Desk at 732/224-2443 for reference materials and at the Circulation Desk at 732/224-2935 for others. Special arrangements can be made with the Library Director at 732/224-2482.

Non-Circulating Collections  

  • 1st floor — Colleges, Careers and Jobs
  • 1st floor — Reference Collections
  • 2nd floor — Law Collection
  • 2nd floor — Periodicals/Newspapers/Microforms
  • 2nd floor — Special Collections: Brookdale Archives, New Jersey, Graphic Arts, and Photography

Returns and Renewals  

You may renew your library books if they are not overdue. To renew online go to the My Library Account/Renew Items option on the Bankier Library web page. HTHS students may renew books for an additional 28 days. All overdue items must be brought to the library to be renewed. Mail or telephone renewal will not be accepted.

Materials can be returned in the bookdrop (located in the library lobby), or dropped off at the Information or Circulation Desks.

It is important to return borrowed materials to the proper location. Materials left on open tables and carrels may not be discharged from your library account.

Restrictions and Replacement Costs  

Failure to return library materials by their due dates will result in a restriction placed on your library account. This restriction will prevent you from further borrowing privileges until your library obligations have been settled.

A replacement bill will be sent to HTHS to recover the costs of overdue library materials. The bill includes a replacement cost as well as a non-refundable processing fee of $25.00 per item.

If an overdue item is paid for and then returned within one year from the due date, a refund for the replacement costs, minus the processing fee, will be given. A paid receipt may be required to obtain such refund.

Delinquent Library Account  

The Bankier Library and Brookdale Community College reserves the right to forward all delinquent accounts to Collection Agencies.

Missing Materials  

If the library catalog indicates that the item is "AVAILABLE" and the item is not on the shelf, report the missing item at any of the service desks. The library staff will search for the item, place the item on hold and notify you if it is located. If the item cannot be located, its status will be changed to "MISSING".

Change of Personal Information  

You are responsible for informing the Bankier Library if there are changes in your personal information.

Questions and Comments  

If you have any questions regarding the High Technology High School Students borrowing policy, please contact the Bankier Library at 732/224-2935.
