Services at the Library

Library cards are issued to adults and children free of charge with a photo I.D.

that shows current residence in Southern Teller County. Children under the age

of 18 must have a parent or legal guardian present to receive a card. We enter

your name, phone number, and address in our system, at this time you may check

out up to three items. Your new library card can be picked up at the circulation 

desk upon your next visit. Once you receive the card you are considered a new

cardholder. New cardholders will be considered temporary for the first three

months, and will be limited to three items at a time.


After three months library card holders in good standing (no unpaid fines or overdue

materials) may borrow up to five items for a year. Books, audios, and VHS videos are 

checked out for two weeks. DVD’s are checked out for one week.


Fines are ten cents a day per item. There is a three-day grace period.


Renew by phone to avoid fines by calling 689-2800. The maximum fine is $3.00 per

item. If the item is lost, stolen, or damaged the fee is the replacement cost.

reference, and browsing.
