Loan Period for Audio and Large Print Books
The loan period begins from the date the patron receives the book.

The length of the loan period for individual patrons is 1 month, for students 2 months and organizatinal accounts 1 month audio and 3 months large print. If you have not finished reading or listening to your books, you can renew by extending the loan period. Please call the library.

We would like to remind patrons that the newest books are the most popular and always have a waiting list. If you could listen to or read and return these books in a timely fashion, other patrons will not have to wait as long.

Loan Period for Braille

Magazines are circulated on cartridge and come directly from the producer in a plastic mailing container. The loan period for the magazine you receive will be announced on the cartridge. Not returning the cartridge when due can result in your magazine subscriptions suspended. If you have trouble with your magazines, please call the library.

Please make sure the correct cartridge ends up in the correct mailing container.
