Public/private educators and home educators may register for an “Educator Loan.” The educator must have a valid library card. Holiday books may be limited to a one-week checkout, no multiple copies of the same title, and no video or DVD titles are permitted. The educator is responsible for selecting the materials which may be checked out for 4 weeks. There is no grace period. Damaged or missing books are the responsibility of the borrowing educator. A 20¢ fine per item per day will be levied for materials returned late.
Clients may request a “Vacation Loan” (4 weeks) for books and audios. No reserve books, periodicals, videos, or DVDs may be charged to this special loan.
Individuals who may require a longer check-out period because of visual/physical handicaps may request a 4-week loan period. This loan may require a health care worker’s verification. No reserve books, videos, or DVDs may be charged to this special loan. Authorized messenger pickup will be allowed for all categories of materials.
Patrons may request material from libraries in the Upper Peninsula database (PII), and from libraries in other Michigan locations (MeL). Loan periods are established by the lending libraries, but are usually similar to the loan periods established by Bayliss Public Library.
