YOUR LIBRARY CARD
library card is free -- and valuable.
Don't lend it to anyone. Tell your parents to call us if you lose
How to Get Your Library Card
If you're 18 years old or under, you can get a library card. Just
get an application from your librarian and have your parent or
guardian help you fill it out and sign it. We'll need both yours
and your parent or guardian's signatures.
You can borrow materials from all areas of the library.
Keep your library card current
Update your library card. Call and let the library know when you
move, change your phone number or e-mail account.
Replacing Your Card
If you lose your library card, tell your parents as soon as you
can, and let them know at your library, too. You don't want somebody
else borrowing stuff on your card. What if they never brought
it back? Yikes!
Your parents or guardians are responsible for materials checked
out on your card.
Replacing it's a snap, and pretty soon you'll be back again, grabbing
books left and right!
You can borrow any materials in the library for 28 days. Your
neighborhood library may have limits on the number of materials.
Ask your librarian.
If you want to hang on to the book you're reading or the video
you're watching, you can use your library card to renew by calling,
visiting the library in person or through the Lane website. Have
your library card handy when calling, visiting or logging on.
If you get materials from any Lane library, you can return that
material to any Lane Library location -- you don't have to bring
it back to the exact same library.
Returning Overdue Materials
Oops! Did you forget to return a book? If you have any overdue
materials, the library will give you two reminders. If you get
any of these and think, "Hey, I don't have a book out right
now!," contact your local library and talk to them about
it. And definitely talk it over with your parents or guardians.
If you have a book out late, you'll owe some money, and if your
fines total more than $5, you won't be able to borrow any more.
So take good care of your library materials, and try to return
them on time.
All materials: 10 cents a day
Fines add up per item, per day, even on days when the library
is closed. So do the math! And return the stuff!
