Loan Periods and Renewals

Most items are loaned for three weeks.  DVDs and "Fast Read" books are loaned for one week.  "Fast View" DVDs, Blu-ray movies, and  “Doorway to Dayton” museum passes are loaned for three days.  You may request a longer vacation loan on most books.  Teachers may also request longer loan periods on items for classroom use.

Materials are renewable six times unless there is a "hold" on the item.  Vacation loans and Teacher Collections are renewable twice for an additional three weeks each time.  "Fast Read" books, "Fast View" DVDs, Blu-ray movies, and  “Doorway to Dayton” museum passes are not renewable.  Once an item has been renewed the maximum number of times, it must be returned to the library to give others the opportunity to borrow it.

Renew in person, by phone, or through the Online Catalog.  Over the phone we will need the last six digits from your library card barcode and the name of the title you wish to renew.  Online you will need the same six digits, plus the last four digits of your telephone number to log into your account.
