JOPLIN, MO (SNS) - Missouri Southern State University announced today that rental textbooks may be retained by students for an indefinite period of time without a penalty.
The books from the spring semester technically had been due on May 23.
"In view of Sunday's tornado, we want to be as accommodating as possible," says Greg Needham, Bookstore Manager at MSSU.
Needham says University officials understand that some students may have had their textbooks in collapsed homes or damaged cars.
Others simply may be taking the advice of officials to stay off streets and highways.
Needham says a new return date for the books will be announced within a few weeks.
The new date will be announced via the University's website, the MSSU Facebook site, direct communications with students and other available means.
Those with questions may contact Needham at 417 625 9508 or the MSSU Bookstore at 417 625 9380.
