Borrowing Privileges

Loan Periods

Patrons may borrow print material, audios, and books and music CDs from the Woodland Public Library for 3 weeks. DVDs, videos, and City Council discs check out for 1 week. Material borrowed from other libraries in the system (Sacramento, Folsom, Colusa, or Sutter) may have different loan periods and may have different limits on number of items checked out.

Late Fees

Overdue fines are 25 cents per day for adult print material to a maximum of $5 per item, 5 cents per day for children and teen material to a maximum of $1 per item, and 25 cents per day for all videos and DVDs to a maximum of $5 per item. The replacement fee for lost or damaged items is the cost of the item. Overdue fines from other libraries in the system may be different.

Check Out Limits

Patrons may checkout a total of 50 items. The maximum number of DVDs and CDs allowed at one time is 10 items each, for a total of 20 items (included in the overall 50 items).

Email Notification

Patrons with an email account can request email notification when books on hold are ready to be picked up and can be notified 3 days prior to the materials' due date. Email notification is a courtesy but is not guaranteed. It is the patron's responsibility to check on hold items and be aware of material due dates.

Renewals

Library material may be renewed in person, over the telephone at 530-661-5980, or by the patron's library account online. Material may be renewed up to 6 times for print material, audios, and CDs, and DVDs with the exception of those items on hold for another patron or those items designated express items.

Holds

Holds may be placed in person, over the telephone at 530-661-5980, or by the patron's library account online. The total number of holds is not to exceed 25 items.
