Circulation Policy

All items circulate for two weeks except for videos and DVDs, which circulate for three days. All items except videos, DVDs, and reserved items may be renewed up to two times. Patrons may renew items in person, by phone, or online through our catalog. Items overdue more than five days may not be renewed by phone.

Please check out books no later than fifteen minutes before closing time. Applications for new or renewed library cards should be requested at least thirty minutes before closing.

Library card applications are legal documents. Persons under 18 years of age must have a parent or guardian sign the application. Parents are responsible for overdue and lost items charged to a minor's library card.

Any item borrowed on a library card is the responsibility of that card holder. Please do not give you library card to others - you will be responsible for their overdue and lost item charges.
