Books, DVDs, CDs, and audiobooks from the Juvenile and Teen Collections checked out after June 1, 2018, will not accrue overdue fines.
All items can be renewed twice, unless a hold has been placed on the item.
MFRL patrons can place up to 20 holds at a time. If the item is available at another branch, we will transport that item to your desired branch for pickup.
Our Digital Libraries offer the convenience of you library from home. Checkout Periods vary by service and item, but generally range from 3 days (Hoopla Movies/TV) to 3 weeks. OverDrive and RBDigital both allow some choice over how long your items check out for. Once your checkout period is finished your items automatically return themselves so you never have to worry about fines. Some items can be returned early.
Items from OverDrive and RBDigital are treated like actual books, each copy can only be checked out by one person at a time. Hoopla and Freading allow for simultaneous checkouts therefore limit how many you can check out per month/week. The former two allow for holds (since an item might not be available) while the latter two offer wishlists (if you’ve reached your limit of checkouts and want an item when you have more again).
|OverDrive||4 at a time||Yes, auto checkout when available|
|RBDigital||10 at a time||Yes, auto checkout when available|
|Hoopla||8 per month||No need, wishlist if over checkout limit|
|Freading||12 per week||No need, wishlist if over checkout limit|
If you are looking for material that MFRL does not own, we can request items from other systems on your behalf. Each system's ILL policies are unique. Most systems will not ILL new items, CDs or DVDs. Patrons requesting ILLs must be in good standing; see our Interlibrary Loan Policy. There is a $5.00 fee per item and payment is expected when the ILL request is fulfilled. Please visit or call your library branch to request an item through ILL.
