Helpful Tips for Borrowers

  • The due date is usually 14 days from the date the materials were borrowed.
  • The number of items borrowed must be consistent with the needs and rights of other borrowers. The library reserves the right to limit the number of items to be borrowed.
  • You may renew most materials twice if there is no hold on the item.
  • You may renew or reserve materials from the library's website.

A Responsible Community

Providing a library for everyone requires a community of responsible users. As a cardholder, you are responsible for complying with library policies, returning materials on time, and paying all fines and fees. Please notify the Library in the case of loss or theft of a card or library materials or change in name, address or email. We reserve the right to forward unpaid fees to a collection agency, at which time a non-refundable and non-negotiable collection fee will be added to the patron's account.
