Library members can borrow up to 12 items at a time, for up to four weeks.
You must present your library card to staff to borrow items.
All items must be returned on or before the due date. Failure to return items by the due day will result in overdue fees.
If you can't make it to the library to return items during opening hours, you can return items using the after-hours returns chute located outside the library's main entrance.
To open the returns chute, either scan your library card or the barcode found inside the front of the book.
Note: Items returned using the after-hours return chute are not considered 'returned' until the next business day.
Fees apply to all late items, charged at 20 cents per day/item, to a maximum $5 per item.
Overdue fees accrue from close of business on the day they were due for return.
Items can be renewed once, for an extra four weeks, provided the item is not overdue, has been requested by someone else or borrowed from another library.
