    • Obtaining a library card-library cards are free for those who live within city limits.  A simple form needs to be filled out to obtain contact information about the potential card-holder.  A $8 yearly fee is required for those who live outside of the city limits.
    • Checking out materials-All books, audio-books, and magazines can be checked out for a 2-week period.  They may be renewed by visiting the library or by telephone. A DVD or video-cassette can be checked out for 3 days.
    • Overdue materials-There will be a $.05 charge on each book for every day that it is overdue.  A $1.00 fine is charged for a late DVD or Video-cassette.
