Quick Overview

Most circulating material may be borrowed for three weeks. New releases and high-demand items may have limited check-out periods. M-rated software and R-rated DVDs may only be checked out by patrons over the age of 18. Reference materials do NOT circulate.

You may renew books, DVDS, music CDs, software, and audiobooks twice if no one else is waiting for the titles. Due to high demand, New Releases cannot be renewed.

A service charge is assessed for overdue material. Children's books are $.05 per day. Adult books and all audiovisual materials are $.10 per day.
