Nevada Talking Book Services Loan Policies

The following policies govern the circulation of books and equipment to eligible blind and/or physically handicapped readers of the Nevada Talking Book Services.

Eligible readers who borrow materials from the library accept responsibility for using materials with reasonable care, returning them to the lending agency according to established loan policies, and not losing or damaging them through negligence. Violation of this policy can result in suspension of some or all library services. [NLM 9.10.2]

Loan Policies

Cassette and digital books are on loan to you for up to 90 days. Digital magazines in gray plastic boxes must be returned to us in 30 days in order for you to receive the next issue. Digital magazines in red containers are sent to you from NLS. These should be returned to sender as soon as you are finished with them. Although we do not charge overdue fines, it is in your best interest to return books promptly. Since each book you return to us prompts another one to be sent, an overdue book will keep you from getting a replacement book.

Recorded books and specialized playback equipment will be loaned by the library to eligible registered readers without charge. Records will be kept of all such loans. The borrower should notify the library of changes of address, a desire to cancel the service, or temporary or permanent transfer of service to another geographic area.

Books and equipment will be loaned to registered readers as long as they are eligible and as long as they actively use the materials during each twelve month period. All books and playback equipment remain the property of the federal government.
