New Patrons must present proof of residency (two forms of ID)—a valid driver’s license with current address or current phone, and a utility, or rent receipt with name, address, and date. There will be a limit of two items per person for first-time patrons. All cards expire after two years and must be renewed. Any applicable fees must be paid before patrons are able to check out materials.
RESPONSIBILITIES OF BORROWERS:
Patrons will be limited to 10 books checked out at a time. When there are several cards issued to members of an individual family, the total number of books checked out at one time cannot exceed 25.
The library has the following loan periods for its materials:
Adult/Children’s’ Books: 2 weeks
Audiobooks: 2 weeks
Magazines: 3 days
Reference Books: In-library use only
Materials that are not on reserve or overdue may be renewed one time over the phone.
Patrons may ask that a new arrival or currently loaned book or audiobook be reserved for them.
These items will be held for 3 days at the desk, after notification by phone. If not called for by the end of the third day the material will be given to the next person on the reserve list. Reserved materials will not be renewed.
For our patrons’ convenience a book return bin for returning books, audiobooks, and magazines, before or after library hours, is located at the Oak Street entrance.
The library accepts donations of books in good condition; those not needed in the library collection will be offered for sale.
