Hours, and a list of holiday closures for the year, can be found here: Hours / Closing Dates


How many items may I check out?

You are allowed to check out 50 total items per card. Only 10 of those items can be Audio/Visual materials (DVDs/Blu-Rays, CDs, CD-Books, etc).


How many times am I able to renew my items?

Most items may be renewed a maximum of three (3) times total, as long as there are no holds on the item. This does not apply to Interlibrary Loan materials.


Where do I return my items?

If you are coming into the library, items may be returned to the main circulation desk, either in the wooden dropbox near the parking lot entrance or on the middle of the Circulation desk. If you're going into the Youth Services Department, items may be returned there as well.

If you're not able to make it into the library during business hours, or you're just looking to drop off items, we have two dropboxes outside on the parking lot side of the building. Directly to the right of the door is a metal container that is for Audio/Visual returns and further to the right is a drop slot set in the building that you can use to drop off your books. 

Please make sure you are using the correct drop box, as books have a tendency to damage A/V materials when dropped on top of them.


Can I return my items to another library?

As long as the library is in the Yavapai Library Network, yes! Click here for a list of all the libraries that are part of our consortium: YLN Libraries


Are there public use computers available?

Yes! Your library card allows you 90 mintues per day of use on any of our public use computers. We have 90-minute Computers available, as well as 20-minute Computers if you're not needing to use a full 90 minute session.

What if I don't have a library card?

If you do not have a library card and would like to use one of our public use computers, Guest Passes may be obtained at the Audio/Visual desk. Guest Passes are only good for 90 minutes on the computers. More than one Guest Pass may be issued depending on how busy the public use computers are.


Am I able to use public Wi-Fi in the Library?

Yes, we have public use Wi-Fi available at the Library! Just connect to the "Library Patron" Wi-Fi connection and there is no password.
