Renewing Materials

All Library materials must be returned on or before their due date.  Initial due dates are listed on receipts received at checkout. In order to keep your library account in good standing*, eligible items may be renewed by accessing your library account or by phone.

*Borrowing privileges are suspended for users who have received a third overdue notice for any currently checked out item.

Returning Materials

Library materials can be returned either inside the library at the circulation desk, or outside the library in the book drop.

Accessing Online Databases

WTPL offers access to many electronic databases on a variety of topics, from the arts and humanities to science and technology, available both in the library and at home.  Many of these databases include full-text articles, audio and video content, and resources in languages other than English. Please note that many databases that can be accessed from outside the library will still require you to enter your library card number and PIN.

Downloading Materials

WTPL cardholders have access to downloadable books, movies and music through online resources and other digital collections.
