All materials are checked out from and returned to the circulation desk. Checking in/out of all library material stops ten (10) minutes before the library closes for the day. When the library is closed, materials may be returned to the book drops located at the Front entrance of the library (top of steps) and at the museum entrance. (The book drop at the main entrance is only unlocked when the library is closed. It remains locked while the library is open.) Materials returned to the book drop are checked in the next day that the library is open. If an item or items are returned after hours on the due date, it will be considered late and fines will apply. Museum book drop is emptied a half-hour before closing time.

Patrons are only permitted to borrow three (3) videos from the adult collection and/or 3 videos from the children’s collection at a time. Most library material may be borrowed from the library for three (3) weeks at a time. The exceptions to this are magazines, videos, and circulating reference material; these materials may be borrowed for one (1) week at a time. Reference materials may circulate with special permission by the Reference Librarian on duty. Exceptions to these provisions may be granted with the permission of the Director.
Materials may be renewed twice by phone, online, or in person. Pin Number activation is needed to establish online account. Library staff may assist with instructions upon activation. Materials on reserve to another patron may not be renewed for any reason.
