  • Retrieving materials
    Without advance notice, staff members will retrieve books and other materials as time and level of business permit. Particularly on evenings and weekends, retrievals may be limited to five items.
  • Photocopying
    You must pay for copies with a copy card. You may leave items for copying and pick them up within 24-48 hours. Without advance notice, staff will help with copying or copy up to 10 pages as time allows.
