Statement of Policy & Text

Young Adult and Children''s periodicals at the King Library may be checked out for a one-week period by any patron who has a current SJSU or SJPL library card. This policy also applies to the most current issue of a periodical title.

Requirements & Guidelines

  • All Young Adult and Children''s periodicals may be checked out for one week with one renewal allowed.
  • Young Adult and Children''s periodicals are not reservable.

Applicable Personnel/Departments
