Auto Renewal

Eligible items will renew automatically two days before they are due if no one else is waiting for them. You can also renew items yourself or monitor your account by logging into your online account.

Due Dates & Late Fees

If you have recently checked out a book, your due date will be on the receipt in your bag. You’re welcome to return books to our book drop or renew them.

If you can’t renew your items or they are not eligible to renew, don’t worry. We will be waiving any late fees through the end of the year.

Returning Books

You can return books to our book drop located in the parking lot. We do quarantine items upon return so they may stay checked out to you for a few days after you return them, but all fines are being waived.

Staying home?

    1. Susan,
      Holds are suspended right now. We can’t get delivery from other libraries so no new items are coming in and nothing can go out. If something is waiting for you on our hold shelf, it will remain there until we open back up. If you don’t mind e-books, we’re adding more to that collection for now to help people get access to reading materials.

  • I am quarantined until about a week after my book is due, which is after the library reopens. Will the late fee still be waived?
