A patron wishing to borrow materials from the Watkins Glen Library will need a library card issued by the Watkins Glen Library or a library card from another library in the Southern Tier Library System and be a member in good standing. This would mean no outstanding fines or charges for lost materials.
The patron would take the materials they wish to borrow following the loan period rules:
New Books 14 days
Fiction 21 days
Non-Fiction 21 days
Audio Books 21 days
Inter-library Loan variable
Rotating Collection Books 21 days
DVD 7 days
Music CD’s 14 days
New Books and Videos may be renewed once
All other materials may be renewed twice.
Fines for overdue books are $.05 a day and overdue videos are $1.00 per day.
All materials must be checked out from the desk and charged to the account of the patron. Patron must be present in order to have materials charged to their card, except in the instance of illness then the patron must call or authorize in writing another to use their card to bring them materials. In the event the patron is not personally known to library personnel we may require ID. Materials may be returned to any library in the Southern Tier Library System.
