The circulation section has immense importance in every library. It is responsible for connecting the library materials with the users. It facilitates the loaning of books, keeping records of what has been returned or what is overdue. When the library materials are returned to the library, the circulation staff must put them back on shelves, at the right places, and be repaired if the need arises. Thus, this circulation policy will facilitate the smooth operation and maximize the access of collection in the library.
