Circulation Loan Periods

 

Books, magazines, audio books and music are loaned for a 3-week period.

DVDs are loaned for a 1-week period.

Items may be renewed unless it has been previously requested by another patron. Patrons may renew in person, by phone or online.  When calling to renew items, it is helpful to have the barcode number of the library card.

The Langley-Adams Library does not charge fines for items.  Other member Consortium Libraries may charge fees and fines.  Fines and fees can be paid at the Langley-Adams Library if patrons wish to pay them at the time of checkout.

Overdue materials will generate reminder notices. Patrons will be notified by a phone call, notices sent through the mail or by e-mail.

Patrons will also be reminded at the Front Desk when checking out if there are any outstanding materials and/or fines or fees.

Interlibrary Loan

 

Patrons may request items from other MVLC libraries through the online catalog. You will be asked to log into your account using your Library Card number and PIN number.  Patrons may also request items in person or over the phone.

Patrons may also request materials not found in the MVLC catalog through the Virtual Catalog or by requesting Interlibrary Loan service at the library.  These requests generally take up to 10 days to arrive.
