The Lewiston Public Library takes pride in offering a quality selection of new and classic books, music CDs, audiobooks, and both educational and entertainment movies. Our aim is to have the latest books on our shelves soon after publication. Library card-holders may place a hold or reserve on any item in the collection, and on most items in the multi-library consortium in which we participate. You may also request that new items be added to the collection. Reserves and requests can be placed in person, by telephone, or through our website.
Your library card must be presented each time you borrow material, and also is required to sign up for Internet computer use.
Books, magazines, music CDs, and educational or documentary films are loaned for a period of two weeks and may be renewed for as many as three two-week periods, unless a reserve request has been placed on an item.
Entertainment videos and DVDs are loaned for one week for $1, and may be renewed for a second week at no additional fee. Audiobooks on disc or cassette are loaned for two weeks for $1, and they may be renewed up to three times with no additional fee.
You may renew books and other materials at the Circulation Department in person, by phone, or through our website.
A maximum of 30 items may be checked out on a card at any one time. With regard to non-fiction materials, the limit is three items on a subject at a time.
