How borrowing works
A WLS library card is required. E-books, audiobooks, and magazines circulate like other library materials. The library owns a copy (or copies) of each title and they are checked out to one borrower at a time. If a title is available, you can check it out right away. If a title is checked out, you can place it on hold. You can choose how long you check out a title: 7 or 14 days. The title automatically expires after the lending period is complete. If you prefer, you can return an item earlier than the due date. You may have up to 10 titles checked out at a time and 10 holds pending at a time.
