Using the Library

Everyone can use library materials and services on-site for no charge. If you have an internet connection, our website can be accessed from home, allowing use of online resources such as databases, eBooks and eAudiobooks, catalog searches, account information, items renewals, and item requests.

Patrons are expected to confirm their identity through either their library cards or photo ID.  Library cards should not be loaned to others as the cardholder will be held responsible for all items on their account. Lost or stolen cards should be reported to the library immediately. The first replacement card will be issued at no charge, but subsequent cards will be issued for a fee.

USLD does not charge late fees. There are fees for lost (unreturned for a month or longer) or damaged materials. Fine amounts vary depending on the materials that have been affected. If fines total $10 or more, patrons will temporarily be unable to borrow items.


The library offers free Wi-Fi internet access 24/7. During library hours, there are public workstations available, in addition to a fifteen-minute express station. The library also has an Early Learning Station  for kids
