All blocks preventing checking out items from e-content providers OverDrive, Hoopla, Axis 360, Freading, Freegal and Flipster Magazines have been temporarily removed for Volusia County residents.

There is no change to the number of items that can be checked out at one time from our eService providers.


Curbside pickup of reservations

Patrons can reserve materials online or call any one of our 14 branches to reserve up to 20 items for checkout. Patrons will be notified by email or phone call when the materials are ready for pickup.

Library staff will pre-check the materials to the patron using their library card information. When they drive up to the library, the patron is asked to phone the library from their vehicle and the materials will be brought to them at the curb. Library materials can be returned through book drops located at every branch.

Select your branch from the Hours & Locations tab on the navigation bar at the top of the page for more information.


Due dates and DVD limits

Library materials are currently due back May 1, 2020 and the Library will move this date out even further if necessary.
