Weeding, Patron Loans

8.  Weeding: The Library conducts regular and systematic surveys of its collection in order to weed out those materials which are obsolete, poorly presented, or too badly worn to be of further use.  Materials will be weeded by the Director using the CREW Method as approved by the American Library Association.

9.  Patron Loans: Library materials shall be loaned to Patrons as follows:

9.1 Library materials available for loan, except for video materials, shall be loaned for two weeks.  Interlibrary loans shall be loaned for the time fixed by the lending Library.

9.2 Library materials available for loan, except for video materials,  may be renewed once for the same time as the original loan unless there is a Reserve on the item.  Subsequent renewals may be made at the discretion of library staff unless there is a Reserve on the item.

9.3  Video materials shall be loaned for 3 days with no renewal.  Video materials may be reserved on the same terms as other items.  Videos must be returned in person to library staff.

9.4 As soon as Library materials are available for circulation in the Library, Patrons can request a Reserve be placed on any item.  Patrons will be put on the Reserve list for the item in the order in which their Reserve request is made.  Patrons will be notified when the item is available for them.  If the item is not picked up within two days after notification, the item will be made available for loan to other Patrons.
