Borrowing Guidelines

Information desk

All materials are checked out for three weeks, with the exception of the 7-day Pick-2 Bestselling Book Collection.  DVDs and Blue-rays may be renewed for another three-week period, as long as no one else has requested the item.  Other renewable materials may be renewed up to three times, if there are no requests for them.

You can renew your items online through My Account by using your library card number and PIN (personal identification number). 

You can renew items over the phone. To renew, call 662-9041, ext. 15; 869-9000, ext. 201; or 955-5144.

Overdue fines are $0.15 per item per day.

Total number of items that may be checked out is 100 per library card.

Limits on DVD checkouts:

          10 adult
          10 juvenile
            5 TV series
            5 Blu-ray

Special conditions

          Checkout for seven days
          No renewals

You are responsible for all items borrowed on your library card.
Please report a lost, missing, or stolen card to your library immediately.


Returning Library Materials

You can return items to any library in the regional system.  If the library is closed, drive-by drop boxes are available (for library items only, please).

Placing Holds

Want an item that is already checked out? Place a "request" through the online catalog either in the library or at home. (You will need a PIN -- personal identification number -- to place holds yourself through the online catalog. Ask at any circulation desk to get a PIN.) When the items you want are returned, the library will notify you and hold the item for three days.

Loan History

If you would like to have a history of items you have borrowed, Circulation Staff can activate that feature for you. The history will not be retroactive, but will retain information on items checked out from the time of activation. Those interested in this feature should be aware that if these records were to be requested by government officials the library likely would be obligated to turn this information over to them.
