Please return applications with a parent’s/guardian’s signature one week prior to your visit.

Group Loans

Group loans enable you to check out up to 30 items under one library card. We get the items ready for you by a requested date and you pick them up when it’s convenient. It’s that simple. To request a Group Loan card, simply contact your preferred SPL location.
