Borrowing Materials

The Logan Library has the following policies to ensure fair and equitable use of library materials.

Library Card

You must present your library card or government issued photo ID to check out library materials.

Checkout Periods

All library materials can be checked out for 21 days with the following exceptions:
  • Book Club Kits check out for 6 weeks.
  • Reference books, newspapers, microfilm, maps, and items in the Local History Collection cannot be checked out.

Checkout Limits

You can check out up to 50 items at a time on your card.


Most library materials can be renewed up to two times as long as another patron does not have the item on hold. You can renew items in person, over the telephone, or through our web site. Your library card is required to renew library materials.

Our system is set up to automatically renew items. If the system renews an item you will receive a notification with the new due date.


If the item you would like to borrow is checked out, you can place the item on hold. When you place an item on hold, you will be placed on a list with other patrons who are waiting for the item. When the item is available for you to check out, you will receive a notice in the mail, via email or text. You can place a hold in person, over the telephone, through our web site, or in the app. Your library card is required to place a hold. You can have up to 25 items on hold at a time.

Holds Notices, Overdue Notices, and Due-Date Reminders

The Library sends out notices to inform you that:
  • Items placed on hold are available to be picked up.
  • Items checked out are due to be returned in two days (email only).
  • Items checked out on your card that are eligible have been automatically renewed (email only).
  • Items checked out on your card are overdue.
  • You are being billed for an item that was never returned.
You can receive notifications in the mail, by email, or text.
To signup for email or text notifications, please speak to a library staff member either by telephone or in person.

Overdue Fines

The library charges overdue fines of 10¢ per item per day up to a maximum of $5.00 per item.

Overdue fines for an item acquired through interlibrary loan are $1.00 per day up to a maximum of $10.00 per item. Additional fees may be assessed by the lending library for items returned late or in poor condition.

The library charges for materials that are lost or are intentionally damaged. The cost for a lost or damaged item will be the replacement cost of that item plus a processing fee.

When the amount of fines owed on a library card exceeds $10.00, the card is blocked until the fines are paid.
