  1. Hi Angela,

    Thanks for your question. Due to budget constraints, we’ve chosen the two week lending period in order to keep the hold list moving for each title, as we are not able to purchase multiple copies for all titles. If you find that a title you are reading or listening to is going to expire before you’re finished with it, once you are within three days of the expiration date a “Request again” button should appear beneath the title on your Loans page.If you click “Request again,” you will either be able to borrow the title again immediately once your loan period ends or you will be placed on the wait list to borrow the title again if there are other holds pending.You can view detailed information on this process here:

    Please let us know if you have any other questions.

  2. You are the only library system allowing only 2 weeks for OverDrive ebooks and audibles to be checked out. Why??
