Institution/Corporation Library Card Policy

Any institution, business, or corporation may request a library card.

An application form will be mailed to the institution, business, or corporation requesting a card, with the following instructions:

  • The completed form must be returned to the Library.
  • A letter on company stationery needs to accompany the application form stating who in the organization is authorized to use the card; and, that the institution/ business/ corporation accepts responsibility for any fines, fees or charges leveled against the card.
  • Once the application form and letter are on file with the library, a library card will be mailed to the organization.

The library card will be required when materials are checked out.

Institutional loan policies are the same as for all library cardholders:

  • Limit to 49 items
  • Normal loan periods apply
  • 1 renewal, if no holds are waiting on an item
  • Fines must be paid for overdue materials
  • Fees must be paid for notices, etc.
  • Lost materials must be paid for
  • Accounts with long overdue materials will be sent to a collection agency.

Institutions/businesses/corporations may call and request specific items to be held for them at the Circulation Desk, as may other library customers.

If there are only a few items being held, they may be picked up at the Pick-up Window or placed in the After-hours Pick-up Lockers.
