The fine print…

  • Lending period is 7 or 14 days, your choice.
  • You do not need to return items; they will automatically become inactive on your device after the loan expires.
  • You may borrow up to 3 electronic titles at a time.
  • In most cases, you may return items early.
  • If an item is checked out to other patrons, you may add your name to a “Hold” list and we ill email you when it becomes available. You may place 3 items on hold at a time. Once the email is sent, you have 3 days to check out the item.
  • Items are renewable if there are no holds pending.
