Loan Periods
Most library materials (books, audio cassettes, and CDs) may be borrowed for 14 days (2 weeks). Loan periods for items borrowed via Interlibrary Loan or from consortium libraries are set by the lending library.

Items may be reserved through the online catalog. If you need assistance, a library staff member will he happy to help. You will receive a phone call or an email (if you have set up email notifications on your account) when the item you reserved is ready to be picked up. Check with the Circulation Desk for notification options. 
Interlibrary Loan Service
If you want an item that we do not have and that is not available from any of the North Texas Library Consortium libraries, you may use our free Interlibrary Loan service to try to obtain a copy from other libraries around the country. Simply search for the item you wish to borrow, request it, log in using the same login information you use for your online account with us, and fill out the information.  Once the item arrives you will receive notification based on your account settings.


Materials checked out in Roanoke are subject to our auto-renewal policies which will renew every 2 weeks for up to 10 times.  The following are alternatives should you find yourself in need of extra renewals beyond that:

You can renew library materials by any of the following methods:

  • In reply to one of our courtesy/overdue notice emails*
Items may not be renewed if they are on reserve for someone else. Interlibrary Loan and consortium item renewal terms are set by the lending libraries.

*Courtesy/Overdue email notifications must be setup on your account by either submitting an email address at signup, or adding an email address and signing up for notification through your account online.
Books and other materials may be returned to the Circulation Desk, placed in the book drop on the outside front wall of the library, or returned at the drive-through book drop located on the north side of the library. Items returned after library hours or on holidays will be checked in when the library opens next.
