  • You must return the item to a staff member at the library you checked it out from.
  • You might be asked to remove an item from its case as part of the check-in procedure. This is to reduce the need for staff to handle items before they’ve been quarantined.
  • Items will be more thoroughly examined after they’ve been quarantined for 72 hours, so if an item was damaged in a way that wasn’t immediately apparent, you may still hear back from us sometime in the 5-7 days following your return.
  • Due to COVID-19 restrictions and the one-on-one nature of a Specialty Checkout, a mask is required to check out and return these items.
  • You must bring a photo ID and your library card to check out your item.
  • Reservation(s) are effective for 24 hours. Item(s) must be checked out within  the 24-hour hold time. (For example: If you reserve a laptop for 10:00 am on Monday, you must pick up the item by 9:59 am on Tuesday. At 10:00 am on Tuesday, your reservation is automatically cancelled). No exceptions. Item(s) can be picked up any time during the 24-hour hold time.
