Checking out Materials

How long do materials check out for?

A renewal is available only if no one else has requested the item. Renewals are not automatic; items may be renewed online (how to renew your items online), or by calling the Check-Out desk at 241-1472, or by renewing them in person at the library.

How many items can I check out on my card?

A library user may have up to 50 items checked out at any one time. In general, the following limits apply per format:

Fines for overdue items

After hours book returns

Main Library: A drive-up book drop is located on the west side of the building.

Dr. James Carlson Library: There is a walk-up book return near the entrance to the building and a drive-through book return on the east side of the building.

Northport Branch: A drop box is available next to the outside door of the Northport branch at the Northport Mall.

Any item that has been checked out from any Fargo Public Library location may be returned to any branch or book drop.

For more information on the library's check-out policies, please see the Circulation Policy.
