Policies & Resources
Getting a Library Card
All you have to do to get a Library Card is come by the Library (during
normal hours), and sign up.
Library Card Benefits
Checking out books
Library resources may be checked out according to the following schedule:
- Books: 2 weeks
- Videos: 2 days
- Audio tapes: 2 weeks
- Peridicals may not be loaned out.
If you keep a book out past its due date, you'll be charged 10 cents for
each day the book is late.
Waiting List for checked out books
If a book you'd like is already checked out (and there aren't any other
copies available), then you can sign up on a waiting list, and when the
book is returned, the book will be held for two days for the next person
on the list. The next person on the list will be called.
Under certain circumstances, it's possible to place a book on hold
for a period of time, so that it will stay in the Library for others to
look at, but can't be checked out. When a book is on hold, you're guaranteed
that it will be in the Library during the hold period (you don't have to
worry that someone might check it out). For example, this might be useful
for a book that every student in a class needs to look at for a while,
but doesn't need to read the entire thing.
You can donate books to the Library, or to the Friends
of the Library. If the Library already has a copy of the book, it will
be given to the Friends for use in a book sale.
Books can also be given to the library In Honor Of or
In Memory Of a friend or loved one. A plate will be put inside
the book noting the honored or remembered person, and who gave the book.
