Loan Periods

Loan Periods

Most items are checked out from the Lake County Library for 21 calendar days / 3 weeks. 

Items that belong to other libraries may have different due dates. Some items, such as materials in high demand or Adult Literacy materials may also have different due dates. 

To check your due dates, refer to your check out receipt, your account online on the library catalog, or call your local branch.

Borrowing Limits

You can check out up to 50 physical items. Digital content does not count against this limit.

Library Card / ID

You must present your library card or a valid form of ID when checking out items.

Renewing Materials

You can renew an item up to 3 times, as long as there are no requests on the item. In demand items may not be eligible for renewal. When renewing items, they are renewed for the same length of time as the initial check out, from the date they are renewed. 

Returning Items

Items can be returned to any Lake, Sonoma, or Mendicino County Library. All Lake County branches have an outdoor book drop where you can return items even when the library is closed.
