Borrowing Guidelines

Check Out Limits

Please note that the items available at other LYNX! Consortium Libraries may differ from those at Meridian Library District; please consult the owning library with questions regarding checkout periods and limits on their items.

See the kits catalog for more information on objects, devices, and book and activity sets available for checkout. 

Beginning January 2, 2023, oversized objects, such as kits and digital devices, will no longer travel through our courier service. Patrons can still check out oversized items from other libraries, but those items must be picked up and returned directly at the owning library.
