Checking Out Materials

Use these guidelines when borrowing material from the library:

  • You must present your own card to check out or renew materials. Family members cannot pick up requested items for other family members unless they present the requestor's library card or unless the requestor has previously granted permission for this and a message on the requestor's library record indicates this.
  • You are responsible for all materials checked out on your card.
  • Parents are responsible for all use of the library by minor children.
  • Please reference your checkout receipt to keep track of item due dates. You may also check your account online for due dates.
