Borrowing Policy

Check out and return books and movies at the Chapter Office.

  • Book loans are for 60 days
  • Movies require a $5.00 deposit and loans last 2 weeks

Borrowing Procedure

The library box labeled, "Circulated Items" is to be used for the check out and return process.

  1. Checkout process:
    1. Remove the title card from the pocket inside the front cover of the book or clipped to the front page. If there is no title card, you can make one.  Ask for an index card and follow examples from other books.
    2. Fill out your name, today's date, and phone number on the back of the card.
    3. Place completed card in the Circulated Items box according to the first letter of the book or movie title.
    4. Optional: make a note of the due date on the inside pocket of the book.
  2. Loans are for 60 days. After this time period, 5 cent per item per day will be charged.


We seek books and movies to add to the library collection. Please check out the subject tag cloud (subject index) or catalog to get an idea of the topics we can use.  All donations are tax-deductible.


Remember to check out the bookstore while you're here! (There's no overdue fees when you buy!) Prices are listed in pencil in each book, but are negotiable with staff.  The list of books for sale is updated monthly.
