    To use the Internet, you must be a Library member and present your membership card to the circulation desk attendant. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.

    Computers are primarily for research. Library staff reserve the right to withdraw access to the computer without notice.

  • Environment

    The Library is not responsible for lost or stolen items.

    To return books, CDs or DVDs outside business hours, use the book drop.

  • Loans, renewals and reservations


    To borrow or renew a book, you must present your membership card.

    You can also reserve and renew online.

    You can take out up to 10 documents at a time, for a three-week period

    Books may be reserved if unavailable. Once the books are returned, we will call you and you have three days to claim them.

    Purchase suggestions

    If you wish to make a suggestion regarding specific documents for the Library to purchase or an inter-library loan, please fill out the form available at the circulation desk.

  • Lost or damaged books

    You must pay the cost of repairing or replacing lost or damaged books. If a lost document is subsequently found, you have 30 days to obtain a refund.
