Borrowing Information

Questions about how long you can keep a borrowed item? See the chart below for information on our borrowing loan periods.

Looking for a book we don’t have in the library? You can request a book through MeLCat. We can also look for materials through our Interlibrary Loan system; stop by the library or call 231-582-7861 for more information.

You may also request materials to be purchased by the library by completing a material request form, online or in person.
