Breaking News: Circulation Changes

Extra, Extra, Read All About It!

So if you’re anything like me, you’re constantly checking out DVDs, CDs and online materials from Overdrive.  Also, if you’re anything like me, you’d know having a limit of ten each can be even more restricting than your britches after a huge Thanksgiving feast.

Well, we at Sno-Isle have heard you and starting this weekend, we’ve bumped up the check out limits! (I know, I know. It sounds too good to be true, but I assure you, it’s real. Just look here.)

As of October 5, 2018 patrons can now check out:

  • 20 DVDs

  • 20 CDs

  • 20 ebooks or eaudiobooks via Overdrive*


What will you do with this increase in check out power? I for one am loading up on horror movies. And, since I can’t let an October pass me by without watching this classic, I’m calling it a Hocus Pocus kind of night tonight.


*For Hoopla, there is still the limit of 10 digital items

    Is the hold limit still 10? I could use a larger number for holds, more than for items checked out.

      That is a very excellent question, Cheryl. I am thrilled to report that the cap for Overdrive holds was also bumped up to 20!

      To view hold/loan limits in a web browser, head on over to, log in, and click on either “Holds” or “Loans” under the My Account button/menu. The number of loans and hold slots left should now appear at the top of the page.

      In the Libby app, click on the Libby icon in the upper right-hand corner and tap on the phrase “See Library Cards” to see a summary of the card(s) linked with the app and the number of loans and holds available.
