East Side Library: Orientation

About the library

You can check out up to 6 books at the library.

You have 3 weeks for all books except graphic novels and magazines, which are checked out for 1 week.
You may renew any books, although if they are on hold for someone else, you may only be able to renew for one more week.
You can put any book on hold, and we will send you a note when it is available to check out.

We do not charge overdue fines, but:

If you have any overdue books, you cannot check out any graphic novels.

If you have more than 4 overdue books, you cannot check out any more books.

We will contact your families to get help to return books, since you need to be reading!

If a book is lost or destroyed, you are expected to pay for it.  If the book is found, you will get your money back.
