Borrowing library materials

Borrowing limits

You may borrow as many items as you can return on time. However there are limits on high demand items such as videos (4 per card), popular authors and magazine issues (4 per card) and nonfiction titles (4 per subject area per card).

A date due receipt is provided each time you borrow books and we can provide updates at any time.

Loan periods

  • Books - three weeks
  • Magazines - one week
  • Videos - one week
  • Audiobooks - three weeks



Reserves may be placed for items currently on loan to other library users. We will call you when the materials become available.


If an item is not on reserve for another library user we can renew it for you for an additional loan period. Simply call us, visit the library, send an email or use the renewal feature in our online catalogue. Please note that if items are overdue at renewal time, fines will still be charged for the overdue period.
