Borrowing & Fines

Our library is funded by private donations, grants, and fundraising. We request a $20 yearly donation for a library card.  The library card may be used by any member of the family.

  • Items are loaned for 4 weeks (28 days) at a time
  • Patrons may borrow up to 25 items at a time

Overdue items no longer incur late fines. We do not want overdue fines to be an obstacle to patrons using our library. We ask you to renew your items if you are not ready to return them.

Before a patron’s library card is renewed after one year, all registration information contained in the user record must be verified and updated, if necessary.

Renewals: Library materials may be renewed unless requested by another borrower. Any item presented for renewal that has a reserve must be returned immediately. You can renew your items by calling or emailing the library, or by logging into our online catalog. Items are renewed for an additional 28 days.

Lost items: Patrons may replace a lost item, pay the retail price of the item, or donate an item of equal value to the library.

We will notify patrons verbally and in writing (by request) of their due dates at check out. You may also opt to receive an email from our automated system 3 days before your items are due as a reminder.
