You may request a maximum of five items at any one time.
The decision to renew an item rests with the lending library. To request a renewal, contact the Ennis Public Library at least two business days before the book is due so that we have time to send the request to the lending library.
It takes approximately two weeks for items to arrive, although this time can be affected by the proximity of the lending library or availability of an item. We will call you when your items have arrived.
The item may be picked up at the Circulation Desk of the Ennis Public Library.
