Borrowing and Fees
Most adult and children’s books can be checked out for 21 days. See the chart below for details on other types of library materials.
Books and magazines can be returned in the outside wall drop box after library hours. When returning audio-visual material (videos, CDs, and audiobooks) after hours, please use the freestanding AV drop box. Please do not return them in the wall drop as they may be damaged by heavier materials.
Most items may be renewed twice in person, online, or by telephone. DVDs, videos, CDs, new adult fiction books, and magazines may be renewed once. Cake pans, mobile hotspots, and any item on reserve for another patron may not be renewed.
