Library cards are not necessary for use of computers or for attendance to most programs.

Loan Periods

All items may be borrowed for three (3) weeks, except Reference and Genealogy items, which are to be used in-library only. Any item, except new releases or items that are on hold for another patron, may be renewed for another period of three (3) weeks.

Overdue Materials


As long as items are returned in good condition, the library does not charge any sort of overdue fees. Items that are damaged or lost entirely are subject to replacement fees. If an item's return or replacement fee is refused by the patron, that patron will lose library privileges, including the use of computers, until the matter has been resolved with library staff.
