Physical Titles
All physical titles (books, CDs, DVDs, Playaways, etc.) are checked out for 2 weeks.

If there are no holds on a physical title, it may be renewed twice for a total checkout period of 6 weeks. When you renew an item, it is due back 2 weeks from the end of the original loan period and not 2 weeks from the day you renewed it unless you renew it on the day it is due or you renew it while it is overdue.

Example: A book is checked out on the 1st and is due back on the 15th. If the book is renewed at any point between the 1st and the 15th, it is due back on the 29th.

Digital Titles
eBooks and audiobooks from OverDrive can be checked out for either 1 or 2 weeks. You can select the checkout period for each OverDrive title on the Settings page. OverDrive titles can be renewed unless there is a hold on the title. eBooks from EBSCO have no lending limit if they are read in the browser. If you wish to download an eBook from EBSCO, you can choose a lending period of 1-3 weeks. eBooks from Biblioboard have no lending limit.
