Other Services

  • Renewal of Materials - Items not on hold, recall, or overdue may be renewed once by contacting the Circulation Desk at 562.2634, or in person.
  • Placing a Hold - A patron who needs an item that is checked out may place a hold on it at the Circulation Desk. This hold will identify an item upon its return, but will not trigger a search of the stacks.
  • Recalling an Item - All library material currently checked out may be recalled by another patron. The current borrower is sent a notice that the book is due after it has been held one week. Patrons not returning recalled materials within 3 days of the new due date will incur a fine and borrowing privileges will be blocked.
  • Search for Missing Items - Patrons may request a search for an item by completing a form at the Circulation Desk. Patrons will be notified when the item is located or when a thorough search cannot locate the item.
  • Patron Printouts - Upon request, a patron will be provided a list of all items charged to their ID card.
  • Privileges - All fines are recorded. When fines amount to $10.00 or more, further borrowing is blocked.
  • Right to Appeal - All borrowers have the right to appeal library charges or suspension of privileges. Appeals are made to the Circulation Supervisor.
  • Confidentiality - Golden Library protects the confidentiality of its borrowers in compliance with Section 18.9 of the New Mexico Code Annotated (Library Privacy).
