May I return any materials in the bookdrops?
Yes! Any and all BRL materials may be returned in either our outdoor or indoor bookdrops!

May I return materials that I checked out from one branch to another Blackwater Regional Library branch?
Absolutely. All of the Blackwater Regional Library Branches are connected, so if you return a book to one branch, it’ll make its way back to its home branch. Make sure not to return school library books, or materials from other neighboring public libraries, though!

I forgot my headphones, can I buy some at the library?
Yes. We do offer headphones for purchase at $1.50 per pair. We also offer 2 GB Flash Drives for $5.00 each.

How many books may I check out?
We don’t limit you on materials, with three exceptions:
10 DVD’s per card
2 Lucky Day Books per card
2 Lucky Day DVDs per card

You don’t have a book I’d like, can you get it for me?
We’ll do everything we can! If you wish, please fill out the Request to Purchase Materials Form, which will be sent to our Collection Development Manager. If it’s special item and/or published more than one year ago, please fill out an Interlibrary Loan Request with your local branch staff.
