Check Out Procedures

  • The maximum number of items that can be checked out at one time on one account is 12. (DVD’s are limited to only 6 of these 12).


  • When you check out a book, you may keep it up to 14 days. A fine of ten cents ($0.10) per book per day accrues if overdue.


  • DVD’s may be kept for 7 days. A fine of one dollar ($1.00) per DVD per day accrues if overdue. 


  • Books and DVD’s may be renewed over the phone or in person only once. Anything on reserve may not be renewed.


  • No more than 2 items from any series or collection, including DVD’s, can be checked out at a time. For example, the Hunger Games series, Dr. Seuss as a collection, and Saw as a movie series. Family accounts will be monitored to insure compliance. 


  • A maximum fine of $20.00 is charged for overdue items, if returned undamaged. This must be paid down to a minimum of $10.00, however, for continued use.
