12. Can I request materials?

Yes. If you would like to borrow something that the library does not have, you can submit a request for the item in person at the circulation desk, over the phone, or using a simple online form here. A staff member will then do their best to obtain the item by either purchasing it or having it brought in via Inter-Library Loan (ILL). Items received via ILL cannot always be renewed, cannot be sent out or returned via Library By Mail, and may take up to 2 weeks to arrive, so please take that into consideration before requesting an item. If the library is unable to obtain the item through any available means, a staff member will notify you.

12. Do you loan out video games?

Yes. We offer a variety of the most popular games for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, Nintendo DS, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo WiiU, and Nintendo Switch. Patrons can browse the selection by looking through the plastic sleeves located near the CD's, which they can then bring to the front desk to exchange for their desired game. Patrons may borrow 2 video games per card for a period of 2 weeks.
