FAQs

How many items can I check out?

You may check out up to 25 items at a time.

I put an item on hold this morning. Where can I pick it up?

You can place holds online when logged in to your account, in person, or over the phone. Holds with available copies are pulled by library staff before we open each morning. We request that you place holds at least 24 hours in advance to ensure your hold will be ready when you stop by to check it out. All holds can be picked up at the main circulation desk downstairs. You will be notified when your hold is ready to pick up.

How long can I keep the items I’ve checked out?

Books and other items are checked out to you for two weeks. If the item is not on hold for another patron, you can renew it for two more weeks, up to four times. If the item has holds, it will need to be returned by the due date so it can be checked out to the next patron who requested it. Museum passes check out for three days and cannot be renewed.

How do I request items that aren’t in your collection?

If you are a current KHL patron, you are welcome to ask us to buy newly published books, DVDs, and audiobooks for the library collection. The item must be new within the last six months. Please note that we must follow our Collection Development Policy and cannot fill every purchase request. To request a new item, complete a purchase request here.  To request older items, fill out an Inter-Library Loan Request here.

How do I get home delivery?

If you are unable to visit the library for more than 2 months due to illness, disability or injury, you could qualify for weekly home delivery of Library materials. Click here to learn more and fill out a home delivery registration form.

How do I access e-books and audiobooks?

Download the Libby or Palace app. Both apps access almost the same collection, so use the app you prefer. You will need to enter your library, Kellogg-Hubbard, and your library card number starting with 2005. The Kellogg-Hubbard Library is a member of the Green Mountain Library Consortium. If your card is expired or restricted, contact the Library so we can update it for you!

How do I access digital magazines

Flipster offers a vast collection of digital magazines that you can read from your computer or mobile device. 

From your Mobile device

  • Download the Flipster app from your mobile device’s app store. 
  • Select your library “KELLOGG-HUBBARD LIBRARY”
  • Select Patron ID Login and enter your library card number 
  • These instructions only need to be done the first time. After that, opening the app will bring you to the magazines. 

From your Computer 

  • Click here to navigate to Flipster. 
  • Enter your library card number. 

How does Kanopy work?

Kanopy is an on-demand streaming video platform that offers movies, TV shows, documentaries, and more. The first time you create a Kanopy account you will need to enter your library information and your library card number. Kanopy guides you through the process of creating a separate account, typically with your email as a username and a unique password. Please keep track of your username and password. Unlike our other online services, we do not have access to your Kanopy account information, and once your library card “belongs” to a Kanopy account, you will need to contact their help page to create a new account or reactivate your old account.
