  1. This supply box will be checked out to you under your library account on the day of your exhibit installation. It will remain checked out to you until the end of the exhibit and the return of all used supplies has been confirmed by library staff.
  2. Within this box is an item checklist of all the available supplies. Please indicate on the checklist which items you have used for your exhibit.
  3. After installation is complete, please return the box along with the completed checklist to the library circulation desk.
  4. When you take the exhibit down, you will retrieve the box from the circulation desk, return the supplies to the box, and then bring the box back to the library circulation desk. Library staff will use the checklist to ensure all supplies have been returned. Once it has been determined that all used supplies were returned, the box will be checked in and taken off your library account.
