A membership/library card will be issued upon request. This entitles the holder to the regular four-week loan period for books, CDs, and government documents. Videos and DVDs are loaned for 7 days. Members may also request up to 10 interlibrary loans during the membership year.

Book Club Research Service - When it's your turn to lead the discussion for your book club, the library staff would like to help. As a special service for members of Library Associates, the library staff will prepare a packet of information about the book and author you are reading. Simply contact Lisa Brunick or Ana Olivier at 274-4921. The packets will be ready within 2 working days (Monday-Friday).
