Circulation Policy

All people wishing to borrow material from the library must be registered at any of the Northern Waters Library Service libraries.  Anyone can get a card so you will be free to borrow our materials.  

The loan period for books and audiobooks is three weeks.
Movies in all formats are due in one week.
Any materials can be renewed either online, in person or by phone for another loan period as long as there are no other patrons waiting for that item. 
Sometimes things like best-selling books and newly released movies will have a waiting list, so they will not be renewable.  

The Drummond Public Library does not charge fines for overdue items, but we fully expect patrons to keep their loan record current and up to date.
Other Northern Waters libraries do charge fines, so it is up to the patron to know if the library that they are borrowing an item from charges fines.
If you do have overdue items, even though we don't charge fines, your patron record may be blocked from use until you return your outstanding items.  

Items borrowed from other libraries will have the same loan period as the Drummond Library.
Being able to borrow other libraries' material is a privilege, so we expect patrons to respect this privilege by adhering to the loan rules.

Please contact the library at (715) 739-6290, or email us at  if you need to renew an item or to inquire about a waiting list for a particular item.
