Let Us Come to You: Door-To-Door Renewal Service for Faculty Members

Being a college professor seems like a very stressful profession.  You are not only educating young minds, preparing students for the real world beyond the classroom, you are also deeply involved in the goings-on of both your university and your field.

The staff of the TWU Libraries, including the Blagg-Huey Library on the Denton campus, deeply respects the faculty members of TWU and wishes to help them however we can.  It is for this reason we are offering a door-to-door renewal service for TWU faculty members this semester.

We’ve previously touched on avoiding late fines and fees at the library, but this renewal service, available to all faculty and adjunct faculty members on the Denton campus of TWU, is something else entirely.  The door-to-door renewal service allows faculty members to renew library materials without leaving their offices.  Simply notify us, and a library staff member will come to your office, renew your items--and leave you to the hectic life of a college professor.

Here’s all you have to do:

1)  Make an appointment at
circ@twu.edu or by calling 940-898-3719 and answering a few questions.  Appointments can be made Monday through Friday, April 21 through May 2, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.  

2)  Have all of the items you wish to renew with you, as well as your TWU ID card (or leave your items and ID card with a graduate assistant or other department staff member.)


3)  Plan to give the library staff member 15 minutes of your time to renew your items.


It really is that simple.  Your items will be renewed for another semester, and you won’t have to worry about those late fines and fees.  This service is in addition to the regular 2 remote renewals and proxy patron service that the library offers to faculty members.  If you have already renewed your items twice remotely and still need them, this renewal service can save you a trip to the library.

To the faculty of TWU, thank you for all that you do.  The Blagg-Huey Library's door-to-door renewal service is but a token of our appreciation.  We hope that this service can in some small way help alleviate some of the stress of being a college professor.

Questions?  Please call the Circulation Desk at 940-898-3719.  We will be happy, as always, to assist you.
