Check out pass for two days.

This pass is made available to patrons of the library.
We are very grateful  for this great gift.

A patron who checks out the State Park Pass can have it for 2 days.  If the pass is checked out before 3 PM, that day counts as the first day.  For example :

A pass is checked out at 11 AM on Wednesday .  Wednesday is the first day.  Thursday is the second day.  The pass needs to either be put in the bookdrop Thursday night or it can be returned promptly at 9 AM Friday morning.  The overdue fee for the pass is $5.00 per day.  Each patron (or family) can only reserve the pass one time each month; however, patrons are welcome to take out the pass any time it is available even if if they have already reserved it once.
