We will extend the due date for you until September 9th, 2020 

Returning books from the Simmons collection

You may keep the book until you can return it to us on campus, or contact circulation@simmons.edu to make arrangements if you do not plan to return to campus.

Books checked-out are due Sept. 9th, 2020.
