The Blanchester Public Library features several new conveniences for patrons!
- Patrons may now borrow up to 10 DVDs on their card.
- Loan periods have been lengthened for almost every type of item. The
loan period for mobile hotspots remains 1 week, but for DVDs, Blu-ray
and new books it has doubled to 2 weeks, and is now 3 weeks for all
other items in the library.
- The library is now fine free. This means we have eliminated all overdue fines for books, audiobooks, magazines, and DVDs. And all previous overdue fines on patrons' accounts have been eliminated.
Fines continue to be $1 per day for mobile hotspots; and the library still charges fees for lost, non-returned, and damaged items. Check here
for more information.
- All items are automatically renewed for you on the due date. You no longer need to worry about contacting the library to renew your item.
There are still the maximum number of renewals allowed for various items (3 for everything except for DVDs, Blu-ray, new books, and mobile hotspots which are 1), and items that have a hold on them can not be renewed. Upon renewal, a notice will be sent via e-mail detailing the new due dates and indicating any items that were unable to be renewed.
Patrons with more than two overdue items will not be able to check out additional items.
