Holds may be placed in person, via telephone, or online. 

Holds must be picked up within five (5) days.


Items will be automatically renewed up to the renewal limit, unless there is a hold on the item for another patron.

Most items* can be renewed up to 3 times. Items that are on hold for another patron cannot be renewed.

Patrons may choose to receive hold and overdue library notices by text, email, or telephone.

Overdue notices will be sent to delinquent borrowers. The final notice will be mailed. 

Courtesy notices are sent to patrons who receive their notices via email or text. These courtesy reminder notices are sent three days before an item is due.


Please inform the library of a change of name or address as soon as possible. Be sure to bring identification to verify your changes.


Report a lost card immediately so that you will be protected.

Normally, the charge to replace a lost card is $1.50; however, during the pandemic, this charge has been waived.


Patrons are allowed 1 claimed returned item. If the item claimed to be returned is not found by the Library and the item reaches "billed" status, the patron will be responsible for paying to replace it.
