Print material (non-reference), audio books, and magazines

Our check out period is 3 weeks.  Patrons may renew an item once for a three-week period unless there is a hold on the item.

Patrons may check out up to 20 books in each three-week period and/or up to four Audio Books at a time.  Patrons may not check out all the materials in a particular subject area.

The first-time check-out with a new library card is limited to two items.  When they are returned, full privileges are granted to the new card-holder.

Reference Books

Our reference books are for in house use only.

Reserves

How do I reserve a book?  You can call us at (303) 258-1101, come in and request the item, or sign in to your account on this web site and place a request.

Patrons may request a hold on up to two items at a time.  When an item becomes available, library staff will notify the patron by telephone or e-mail.  Requested items are kept at the circulation desk for seven days after the member has been notified.

Returns

Materials can be returned to the library during library hours or to the outside book drop.  There are no fines for overdue items as long as materials are returned to the Library in good condition.

Replacement

What if I have to replace a lost or damaged book?  Please contact the Library with the title of the book and we will advise you of the replacement cost.

Overdue Limit

If a patron has materials checked out which are overdue, their privileges will be revoked until the materials are returned.

Interlibrary Loans

When materials are unavailable at the Nederland Community Library, patrons may request an Interlibrary Loan for no more than five items at a time.  Interlibrary Loans are not available for books published within the current year.  A completed form and a library card in good standing are necessary for each requested Interlibrary Loan.  There is no charge for an Interlibrary Loan.  Click here  (INSERT LINK HERE) to access the Interlibrary Loan form.
