There is a limit of 40 items that can be borrowed per library card.  

Books and other materials (kits, audio books, DVDs or videocassette recordings, and fishing poles) shall have a two (2) week loan period, with two (2) renewals of two (2) weeks each.  New materials have a two (2) week loan period, with no renewals.
