Using the library

Library members may borrow books, magazines, videos, DVDs or audio books for a period of two weeks.  Items may be renewed by phone or e-mail. Items not available in the library’s collection may be available through the Interlibrary Loan system at no charge.

After-hour returns can be dropped off at the book return located on the back wall of the building. Items returned after closing are checked in the following business day.

A fine of ten cents per item per day is charged for overdue returns. Outstanding fines of more than $5.00 will suspend member privileges. $10.00 is the maximum fine for any single item. A fine of $1.00 per day is charged for overdue return of Interlibrary Loan materials.  Lost or damaged material will incur a replacement charge.

Borrowing DVDs requires payment of a $1.00 fee per item per two-week lending period. Overdue rate for these items is $1.00 per day.
