Borrowing Basics

HOW MANY?

Adults can have 30 items on their card, temporary patrons and youth 20 items, and children 10 items.

HOW LONG CAN I KEEP THINGS?

You can keep books, magazines, and CDs for three weeks and DVDs for one week. Due dates may vary on items borrowed from other libraries. 

NOT DONE? RENEW IT AND KEEP IT LONGER.

Material may be renewed one time unless it has been requested by another person. You can renew your items:

PLACING HOLDS

You can request up to 10 physical and 10 digital holds. Just log in, search for your item and click “Place a Hold.” You’ll be notified by email or phone when your items are ready for pick up. You'll have 7 days to pick up your hold(s).

No email on file, but want to add one? Sign up for email notifications.

LATE RETURNS

Your account will be charged 5 cents for every day that an item is overdue. You will be charged the price of the item plus a processing fee if items are more than one month overdue. If the item is returned the item charges will be waived and only overdue fines will be charged. Once the charges on your account reach a total of $25.00 you will not be able to borrow any more items.

 It's important to keep your account in good standing so come into to the library so we can help you with your account problems or login to your account and make a payment online.

HOW DO I GET A CARD?

Register for a library card at the library's front desk. Identification and a local mailing address are required. Short term residents may be offered limited borrowing privileges in accordance with rules set by the library.
