Should we get rid of the limit on DVDs?:

We Listened To You!

Effective immediately, all Library members can now borrow up to 20 DVDs or BluRays per person. The limits have been increased because we responded to our members demands. Please remember that DVD and BluRay fines are still in place. So enjoy, but return on time!
