New check-out and fine policies
Please note that as of November 15, 2012, our check-out periods and fine structure have changed.
Due dates are now standardized for the entire Library with the same check-out periods and renewal policies for both Adult Library & Children's Department materials.
- Books and audiobooks from the Adult Library and Children's Department will check out for 14 days, with 2 renewals, fine .15 per day, max fine $5.00.
- DVDs and videos will check out for 4 days, with 1 renewal, fine $1.00 per day, max fine $5.00.
- Magazines will check out for 7 days, with 1 renewal, fine .15 per day, max fine $3.00.
You will be able to renew new books if there are no holds on them.
DVDs will check out for 4 days with one renewal, so it is possible to keep them for 8 days if there are no holds on them.
The four-week check-out period will be given only to patrons who will be in circumstances not allowing them to renew by phone or online.
The one-day grace period will be eliminated as of April 1, 2013.
With our new online catalog system, you can now renew items and place holds at any time. We encourage all patrons to log in and create a user account to take advantage of these features. Click here to see instructions.
