Library Loans

The loan period for all loanable material is 4 weeks.

A one-time extension (4 weeks) can be granted by phone, e-mail or in person, provided the loaned book has not been reserved by another member.

A maximum of 5 books per member may be loaned at the same time.

Please note that some material will not circulate. Some examples of materials that do NOT circulate are DVDs, CDs, periodicals, reference books, some art books and some older books.

We also offer long-distance loans throughout the U.S. The ACFNY Library will pay to mail items to members, but members are responsible for the cost of return postage. Please contact the librarian at for further information.
