Library Policies - Check-out Policies

Check-out Policies


You MUST have your card with you in order to check out library items. You must also show your card when you pick up an interlibrary loan item. If you are picking up or checking out an item for another patron, you must show that patron's card.


New patrons: You are a "new" patron until you have held your library card for one month. New patrons may check out 3 items at a time.


Regular patrons: You may check out 25 items at a time.


Non-resident patrons: You may check out 5 items at a time.


Most library materials—such as books, periodicals, audio books, and CDs—can be checked out for two weeks. Exceptions are new adult fiction books, DVDs, and videos, which can be checked out for one week. The check-out period for interlibrary loans vary according to the policy of the lending library. Reference materials may not be checked out.
