  • How To Reserve Your Thing

    Some items can be reserved online through our online catalog, but many require a phone call. We'll get the item ready for you and contact you when you can pick it up. Sometimes you will be able to request an item in person while you are at the library.

  • How To PIck Up and Check Out an Item

    Many items have unique circulation policies, and some may require a signed use agreement. For instance, gardening tools and Mobile WiFi Hotspots are only loaned to adults. The telescope and astronomical binoculars can be loaned to young people, but the agreement requires the signature of a parent or guardian.

  • How to Return Your Thing

    Items are returned to the Circulation Desk on the first floor. Please make sure that your item is returned cleaned and in good condition. IF You encounter any difficulties using your item, please inform the circulation staff member.
