Loan Periods

Most hardcover books are checked out for a 28-day loan period, as are circulating puzzles and all paperback books.  The newest adult and teen fiction circulate for a 14-day loan period due to higher patron demand.  Audiobooks and playaways reflect the same circulation rules, with newer titles checked out for 14 days and older title for 28 days.  Magazines and comic books also circulate for 14 days.  Movies, whether DVD or VHS, are loaned for a 7-day period.

Items with no reserves may be renewed online or over the phone.  Online renewals may be refused due to excessive renewals, in which case please call the library and ask if a staff member can renew the item(s).  The Milton-Union Public Library is fine-free as of January 2018.  Items that have not been returned within 30 days of the due date will be considered missing, and the patron will be charged for the cost of the item.
