Frequently Asked Questions
How do I sign up for the online newsletter?

Do I need to get a library card to use the computers?
You do not need a library card, the computers are open to the public. We do require a sign-in and sign-out for statistical purposes; come to the main circulation desk to sign in.
How many times can I renew a book?
You can renew a book three times, unless it is on hold for another patron (in that case, you cannot renew). Please contact the Circulation Desk for renewal policies for other items (e.g., DVDs, museum passes, etc.).
Do I need to come into the library to renew a book?
The Library offers auto-renewal. This means that when an item is due, it will be automatically renewed unless another patron has placed a hold on it. If an item cannot be renewed, you will receive an email requesting that you return the item. You can also renew via this website, or you can call the library.
Where's the copy machine and how does it work?
There is a black & white self service copy machine located by the patron computers; the coin slot is located next to it (and it does give change!). Copies are 15 cents/page.
Alternatively, you may bring your copies to the circulation desk, where a staff member will copy your documents for you.
For color copies and special copying requests you must bring your documents to the circulation desk.
