Learn how to use the Library

We have a learning academy for patrons to help them learn all about how to use our library and its resources. To see all our tutorials click here, or click the tab on the right of your screen. We have also highlighted tutorials that might answer your questions below.

Library items normally have a due date of four weeks from the checkout date. If you’d like to return library items, the return slot at the back of the library is open 24/7. If there are no holds on the item, you may extend your loan by logging into your library account.


You can find an item that you are interested in loaning out and place a hold, when its ready you can come pick it up at the library, or choose to cancel it whenever you’d like.

Using the Online Catalogue

All the items we have available to loan out from the library are displayed in the library’s online catalogue. You can browse popular selections and booklists, do a basic search, or perform a detailed advanced search for the items that you are looking for.
