Borrowing Materials

What Can I Borrow?

Loan periods

Due dates are extended from the date of renewal. Two renewals, if there are no other requests for the item. Extended loans for vacations, et cetera, available upon request.


Fines are charged for materials returned to the library after the date they are due. They may be returned up until midnight of the date they are due without a fine. Fines are not charged on days the library is closed.

Important: Please note that up-to-date fine totals are calculated once materials have been returned to the library (therefore fines appearing in your account may not reflect final amounts due).

An accumulation of unpaid fines will result in the suspension of library privileges.

Lost and Damaged Items

The full cost of the item plus a processing fee of $5.00 per item will be charged.

A charge of $5.00 will be levied for for lost DVD and CD cases.
