Circulation Policy


Borrowers are required to register for a library card to check out materials as well as gain access to library computer terminals.  Library cards are issued free of charge with proof of identification and current address. A fee of $1.00 will be charged to patrons who have lost their library card.  A second replacement card issued within the same year will cost $5.00 and the third $10.00.

There is no limit to the number of books that may be checked out, however we advise all patrons to please not check everything out in one subject area.
