Book Drops:
Book Drops are located behind the Library building and are always open, with the exception of 3-day holiday weekends when they are closed.

Items may be returned inside the Library at the interior Book Drop.

Holds or Reserves:
You may place a hold on any circulating item. This allows for you to be on a waiting list for a new or popular item. Library staff will tag the item with your name when the item arrives, notify you according to your preferred method of communication (text, email, or phone call) and you may pick it up at the Front Desk. Holds may be placed online, in person, or by calling (903) 237-1354. For more information, please read our Online Service Brochure.

Collection Agency:

The Library uses a collection agency to collect overdue fines and replacement fees for lost items as indicated on the Legal Contract signed at time of obtaining a Library card. Notice is automatically sent to the collection agency via the computer system if the patron owes more than $20.00 over a 45-day period.

The Library does send out courtesy reminder notices for lost or overdue items, but the Library is not responsible for lost or misdirected mail. It is up to the patron to keep their account information (address and phone number) up to date. Note: Lost or misdirected notices do not relieve the Library cardholder of financial responsibility of fees and unreturned materials.
