You may borrow up 30 items at a time. Use our books and DVDs for up to 4 weeks. You may borrow newer books and everything else for up to 2 weeks. Return your materials on time and in good condition to avoid fines and charges. To learn about fines and other potential charges, see our Schedule of Charges. You can learn more about all this by reading the Board’s Borrowing Policies.
If you need to renew your books you can do this in person at our Service Desk, by phoning or emailing us or by using My Account online. You need to do this before the due date of whatever you’ve borrowed in order to avoid fines.
If you can’t find it in our collection, we’ll try to borrow it for you from another Library. To learn how to do this online, read about Interlibrary Loans on this website.
You can now borrow Kindle eReaders from the Library.
We have Amazon Kindles loaded up with popular and critically acclaimed eBook titles. Check out one for up to 2 weeks and experience eBooks for yourself. The Kindles are loaded up by genre-- each has either fiction, non-fiction, or mysteries.
If you are age 13 or older you just need your Library card to borrow or place a hold on one of the Kindles.
More details about this pilot program are published on a Kindle FAQ sheet available at the Service Desk or you can read it by clicking here.
It happens. Someone gets to the item that you want first. Or we’ve ordered it but it’s not here yet. When that happens you may reserve the item so you get your place in the queue. To do that, just phone us, send us an email or use My Library Account online if it’s something we already have in the collection.
Often, titles that are in high demand are the ones you want to reserve. Those titles are usually newer books for which the maximum loan period is only 2 weeks. This means it won’t take too long to get to the top of the list.
When your turn comes, we’ll phone you and you can pick up the item at the Library.
You can use My Library Account to see a list of what you’ve checked out, renew your books, place a hold on a book or make a book bag. All you need is your Library card number to log on. Remember, for those of you whose Library card number begins with “P0” that the “0” is a zero. The first time you log on your password will be the last four digits of your telephone number (the one you gave us when you registered for a Library card, so if that’s changed you need to tell us). If you want to renew your books you need to do that before they are due.
