Check Out and Return
To borrow library materials, you must have a library account and be in good standing. You will not be able to check out items, renew items, or place holds if you owe $25.00 or more. See Paying Fines and Fees.
Please have your library card in hand to check out materials. If you don't have your library card with you, you must show proof of identity.
You may check out up to 100 items on your card. You may check out up to 20 DVDs on your card.
If an item you want is not on the shelf, you can place a hold through our catalog. You will be notified by mail or by email when the item reaches your pick-up branch. Alternatively, if an item is available at another branch, you can call there to ask that their copy be sent to your branch for you. There is no charge for holds or transfers.
If our library system doesn't own an item you need, we can request it from another library system through Interlibrary Loan.
