- What are the age requirements for a child to get a library card?
Any child of any age can get a library card as long as a parent or legal guardian is willing to sign and take responsibility for that child. We also request that the parent or guardian have a card, but it is not required.
- How can I renew my books?
Books can be renewed over the phone or in person. You do not have to bring the books in to be renewed. However, if the book to be renewed is reserved for another patron, it will not be renewed and will need to be returned as soon as possible. Any overdue fines will be charged to the patron account.
- If the library does not have a book, can I get it from another library?
Yes, we provide a free Interlibrary Loan Service where we can have a book sent from another library in the State.
- Do you have a meeting room? How much does it cost?
We do have a meeting room that can be reserved during library hours. It is free and all meetings are required to be open to the public. Any library related meeting or event takes precedence over any other meeting. See “Meeting Room Policy” on the Policies page for complete rules and regulations.
- Does the library accept volunteers?
Yes, the library does accept volunteers for community service or if hours are needed through an organization, such as AmeriCorps. Ask any staff member about details on how to become a library volunteer.
