Can I check out books from other libraries?
You can borrow titles from any library as long as you have a library card for it. In certain cases, your library may have a partnership with another library or consortium that lets you borrow titles from the partner’s collection using your normal library card.
Can you check out a book if you forgot your library card?
It may be possible to check out an item without a library card if you come to a branch of the library in person with a valid photo ID that shows current address. If you are unable to find your library card, please ask for a free replacement card.
What happens if I lose a book from the library?
If lost, the library would charge the patron only what that value was in the record at the time of checkout (which may be a contractual/legal issue.) These kinds of costs can be known and would be assessed before the item is lost; libraries assign a replacement cost to items when they catalog them, for the most part.
