NEW LOAN RULES FOR NEW BOOKS

 
In an effort to make sure our library patrons get access to new books first, we've changed some of our lending rules. We hope you enjoy having first dibs on our new titles!

All books with a "NEW"  sticker can be checked out for one week and can be renewed as long as there is not a hold placed on the books. 

This does not affect your ability to get new books from other libraries.
