Certain books, such as examination textbooks, require a deposit totaling the replacement cost of the book in order to circulate. This deposit is held until the books are returned.
An extended length of loan period is available for materials that are not in high demand. This privilege will be granted by branch librarians at his/her discretion.
Adult patrons may check out a maximum of 10 items on their library card. This is a recommended limit, and may be extended if a parent is checking out children's books and requires more than 10 items. Children may check out a maximum of five items on their library card.
Any library material may be put on reserve for a patron. If the item is owned by another library, it should be considered an inter-library loan and should be handled in that manner.
The patron will be notified as soon as the reserved material is available. Once notified, the patron has five (5) days to pick up the reserved item.
