Circulation Policies

Library Cards

Children age 6 and above will be issued a card when their applications are signed by a parent or guardian.  Visitors in our county may enjoy library privileges after paying a $5.00 fee.  Non-residents of Gillespie County are charged $5.00 per year for a family library membership. Each cardholder assumes full responsibility for the return of all material borrowed and for all fines incurred on his card. Please report changes of name and/or address promptly.

Checkout and Return

The Circulation Desk on the first floor serves as the check out and return desk for all library material. The date on which your book is due is stamped on the card in the book pocket. A reasonable number of books may be checked out for two weeks. Should you wish to keep a book longer, please call us.


If the book has not been requested by another reader, we will renew it for an additional two weeks only.


If the book you want is not on the shelf, we can reserve it for you and call you when it comes in.

Interlibrary Loan

If the particular book you want is not in our collection, we may be able to get it for you through interlibrary loan. There is a postage charge for this service.


There is a charge of 5 cents per day on overdue books.
