Materials Loans and Rentals


The Library loans out the following items:


- Printed books

- eBooks

- Audio books

- eAudio Books

- Music CDs

- DVDs


A library card is required to borrow materials from the Library. The library card policy describes how to obtain a library card.

Books & Audio Books

Most books are loaned for three weeks with the exception of popular new titles which may be subject to a 7-day loan period (will be clearly marked as a 7-day item). All printed books are renewable as long as another patron does not have a hold placed on the book.


Movies are loaned for 7 days with the option for 1 renewal as long as another patron does not have a hold placed on the movie.

Overdue Fines


If items are not returned by their due date, a patron's account will incur overdue fines of 25¢ per day, per item.  The maximum amount of fines that will accrue on any one item in a single checkout period is $5.00.  Please note: a renewal counts as a new checkout period.

Replacement Library Cards

Library cards are free to residents (see library card policy).  However, replacement cards are $1.00 each. If you have lost your card, you may obtain a replacement at the Circulation or Reference Desks.
