Reciprocal Borrowing

The Ella Johnson Memorial Library allows people with cards from other libraries to borrow materials. The reciprocal borrower must be in good standing with their home library by having a current non-expired card and no fines.

Renewing Materials

Library materials are usually, but not always, renewable. Non-renewable items include all new DVDs and CDs, interlibrary loan materials, materials on reserve for another patron, and materials that have already been renewed once.

Returning Materials

The library provides books drops in four locations:

Late Fees

There is a three day grace period for all print materials with the exception of interlibrary loans.


All library items may be reserved with the exception of magazines.

Interlibrary Loan

Material not owned by the Ella Johnson Library may be ordered through interlibrary loan. The library is a member of the Prairie Area Library System, which is the primary source for interlibrary loan material.
