Want to read this summer?

Here's the deal on borrowing books and scores from the Conservatory Library this summer:
For continuing students, ask for a summer borrowing privilege form at the circulation desk. You must provide us with an Oberlin mailing address. No OCMR numbers are accepted. We also need to know the date you will be leaving Oberlin. That will become the expiration date for your privileges. If you are finishing an incomplete, privileges are extended until the incomplete is due. All items are still subject to recall.
For graduating students, you must go to the main library and register for alumni borrowing, or if you are staying in the area, you can register as a town patron.
Happy summer reading!
