Privileges and Responsibilities of Having a Library Card
The privilege of having a library card is that it provides you access to books, audio books, research books, movies, music, and computers. With this privilege comes responsibility.
Only the owner of a library card may check out materials. No one is allowed to check out any library materials using another patron’s account even if that person is related. We can however allow an authorized person to pick up materials already checked out to the primary card holder. In other words, any primary cardholder may designate an authorized user to pick up materials that have been checked out to that primary card holder. That authorized user can only pick up materials, they cannot check out materials for that primary card holder. And we will require a photo ID of the alternate user prior to them taking any materials from the library. If you would like to designate an alternate authorized user to pick up your already checked out items such as holds or Inter-Library Loans, please email us written permission or come into the library with written permission for that alternate user. Examples of alternate users would be parents, spouses, children, friends, etc.
