Patrons may check out 10 items the first time.  After 30 days, patrons are limited to fifty items on their card at one time.

First library cards are free.  Replacement cards are $1.00.

Patrons may request the Champaign County Library retain their personal loan history with the understanding these records are governed by the Policy for Securing Confidential Personal Information and the Confidentiality of Circulation Records Policy

Upon issuance of a library card, the patron agrees to abide by the library’s policies.  Failure to do so may result in suspension of borrowing privileges.
