How long may I keep my items?
Most items check out for a 3-week time period. Entertainment DVDs have a 7-day loan period. Lending periods for Interlibrary Loans are set by the lending library.
How many items can I check out?
On their first checkout, new cardholders may check out a maximum of 3 items. After the first checkout, cardholders may have a maximum of 100 items checked out at one time. A maximum of 25 DVDs may be checked out at one time.
How do I return my items?
There is an outside book return box located to the right of the main entrance. There is also a book return slot inside the Library. Most Library materials can be returned through the book return slots. Items that cannot be returned through the book drops are labeled with a "Do Not Put In Book Drop" sticker, and these items should be returned directly to the Children's Desk. Overdue items may be checked in at the Circulation Desk.
