Circulation Policy

Personal account holders and members and/or the responsible adult on a family (juvenile) account are responsible for any items checked out on their accounts and for any fines or fees accrued on their accounts. If any Library card is lost or stolen the customer must notify the Library. Upon such notification, no materials will be loaned against that card. A $1.00 replacement fee will be charged for replacement cards.

  • M.U.R.A.L. patrons may borrow all materials.
  • All services, including reserves, are available to out-of-town members who hold valid library cards.
  • InterLibrary loan requests will be honored. In the case of duplicate requests, borough residents will receive priority. Requests should be originated through a cardholder’s home library.
  • The maximum number of HOLDS a patron can place is limited to 5 items.
  • Customer borrowing privileges are suspended when the maximum limit set for fines or fees has been reached.
