How long may I keep items I check out?

Most materials have a three week loan period. All entertainment DVDs and VHS videos have a one week loan period.  Interlibrary Loan materials may have a special due date set by the owning library. If you are unsure when your items are due, check with your library during open hours or log in to your account at the top of this page. You may also renew items online or over the phone if nobody is waiting for them, up to 2 additional check-out periods. Items may be returned to any library book drop.

Check-out periods vary from three days to three weeks for items in our digital library. Some digital providers allow you to set a shorter checkout period or to return an item early.
