We’ve Raised Limits on AV Materials

Books on GrassWe try to offer patrons a wide variety of audiovisual materials, from DVDs and BluRay™ movies to CDs to audiobooks to Playaways®.

There are so many types of media to choose from, and so much to enjoy, that we are raising limits on many of our AV materials. We’re even raising the per family toy limit!

We hope that these changes make managing your materials a little easier. If you have any questions, please ask at the Circulation Desk.

It’s a Great Time For Lower Fines

new finesGood news! To better serve patrons, we’ve lowered fines on many items.

All Youth kits will check out for 3 weeks, and all will have fines of 10 cents per day. The exceptions to this new rule are Science-to-Go, STEAM, and Travel Kits, which will have a $1/day fine.

In addition, most items now allow a second renewal, as long as no one has the item requested. Art prints can still only be renewed once.
