Circulating books are checked out for a period of four weeks. If you need items beyond that time the checkout can be renewed. To renew a book you can bring the book to the circulation desk along with your Student ID, call (478)-471-2709 to renew over the phone, or go online to your GIL-Find account and renew there. If you have a GIL Express book from another Library, it must be renewed online through your GIL account prior to the due date or your account will be blocked.

To access your GIL account, go to MGA's GIL-Find online catalog, log in (see below), and choose "Access My Library Account."
