Interlibrary Loans = No Renewals

-Outstanding fines totaling $5.00 or more must be paid prior to renewal.
-Items that are late at time of renewal will have fines assessed for those items.
-Items that have already been renewed must be returned & available for loan for at least one business day before borrowing them again.
-Due dates for items that are renewed are calculated from the date of renewal, not the original due date.

Auto Renewals

We’ll attempt to automatically renew your eligible items on the due date.
-You’ll receive an email notice informing you of the new due date or if the item was unable to be renewed (must be signed up to receive email notifications).
-You’ll still receive the reminder courtesy notice three days prior to your items being due.
This will begin with items checked out starting December 14, 2020. Items checked out prior to this date will not automatically renew.

Method:  In person, by phone, online*
Reservable:  All circulating items can be reserved

-Patrons may request any item that is in circulation; reserves will be fulfilled in order from the earliest to the latest request.
-Patrons will be notified by telephone when an item they have reserved has been returned to the library. After such notification, the item will be held for 3 working days, after which it will either be returned to the shelf, or checked out to the next person on the reserve list.
-In order to place online reserves, patrons cannot have fines over $5.00 on their accounts.
