Most library materials are checked out for 3 weeks.
You may renew most items three times unless someone else has placed a hold on that item. Once you have returned an item, you must wait one day before checking the same item out again.
You may have a total of 50 items checked out at any one time. Within that total, the number of any particular type of items may be limited, depending on type of material, subject, and local demand.
If your fines surpass $50, you will not be able to check out or place holds on any items.
E-books and other digital materials have borrowing limits dependent upon platform.
Returning Library Materials
All circulating Library materials, except tools and hotspots, may be returned to any branch or book drop of the Oakland Public Library.
Materials returned to other public library systems are not considered returned until they are checked in by the Oakland Public Library. Fines will be charged for overdue items.
