Upon request, material may be renewed via a phone call or email. If there are no requests by another patron for an item, it may be renewed. Book Drop Returns: The Library maintains a bookdrop available to patrons from outside the library for our patrons’ convenience. Items returned after the library is closed will be considered returned the next day. Materials returned in the book drop while the library is open are checked in on the same day. The bookdrop is not checked on Sundays or on holidays. STEM Kits: The primary purpose of STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) kits is to provide education resources while exposing children to the STEM fields. The kits assist children in developing critical thinking and deductive reasoning skills. The library encourages kids of all ages to explore the STEM fields with a variety of STEM kits for checkout. Because of this, a limited number of items are available for checkout. Exceptions may be made at the discretion of the library administration. STEM kits are checked out for 2 weeks at a time. Kits are available at the service desk on a first-come, first-serve basis. To reserve a kit in advance, contact the library service desk. Borrowers must have their own active library card and be in good standing at time of checkout. Reciprocal cards may not check out kits. Library staff reserves the right to refuse service to anyone who abuses the kits or is repeatedly late in returning them. If a kit is lost, returned in parts, stolen, damaged, or otherwise not returned the patron will be responsible to pay, repair, or replace the item. Users are required to report any problems experienced during their borrowing period. The condition of the kit will be assessed before checkout and upon its return.

Enriching. Empowering. Evolving.
