Community Users - Library Accounts/Circulation of Materials

Onondaga County residents are welcome to borrow library material. With a photo ID, we will issue a community user library card.

Community users must have their library card/photo ID to check out library material and are responsible for all items charged to their account. 

A community user does not need an ID card to use the computers in the library. A library employee wil be happy to log them onto a computer.

Community users in violation of any library policy may lose their privileges at the discretion of the librarian.

Community users may borrow up to 15 items at one time.

  • Books: 3 weeks (two renewals allowed)
  • Periodicals: 3 weeks (one renewal allowed), 5 periodical limit, the most recent issue does not circulate
  • CDs: 2 weeks (one renewal allowed), 10 CDs limit
  • DVDs: 1 week (no renewals allowed), 5 DVD limit
  • Reference items: do not circulate; in-library use only

NOTE: Books and periodicals are subject to recall after the initial three-week loan period.
