Books, magazines, videos, audiobooks, Playaways, and Playaway Launchpads may be checked out for two weeks, and renewed for another two weeks if nobody has requested them. Books and other material that is borrowed through Interlibrary Loan (ILL) may not be renewed. Material will not be due on a day the Library is closed, whether due to internal library needs, weather, or holiday, but will be due the next regularly scheduled day after such closings. All items save for laptops and hotspots may be returned at any branch, or in any of the dropboxes located at the branches.
Laptops and Hotspots can be checked out for a period of one week, and cannot be renewed. There is a limit of one laptop and one hotspot per household, and neither may be put on hold. A household must wait a week before it may check out another like item. Laptops and hotspots must be returned to the branch they were checked out from. At the DeRidder branch, laptops and hotspots may only be checked out between 10am and Noon, or 2pm to 4pm.
