Holds not picked up

You have 7 days from date of notification to pick up your holds. For each item you don't pick up, your account will be charged a $1 fee. After the 7-day-period, the hold will expire and the item will go back on the shelf or on to the next hold request.

 

Restrictions on Checking out Items for Non-Resident Cardholders

If you have a library card from another library, you may not check out our video games, eReaders, magnifier for visually impaired, and telescope but you can check out all other types of items as long as you register your card at the Checkout Desk.

 

Renewals

Our system automatically renews your items twice if renewals are allowed and there are not any holds on the item. You'll then get notification that your item is due. To see what has been renewed, click on "My Library Account" from our home page's upper right corner, log in, then you'll see what you currently have checked out and due dates.
