Reserve Express

Reserve Express is a standing order program for popular fiction authors. If you would like for new titles from your favorite authors to be automatically added to your reading list, pick up an enrollment list at your local library. Or, you can print your own list and return it to the library during your next visit.

Renewals & Autorenewals

As a courtesy service to help patrons avoid overdue fines, the Library's software system attempts to renew any material that is eligible for renewal.  This auto renewal process typically occurs around noon each day and analyzes materials due on the day of analysis.  It is important to know that not all materials are eligible for renewal.  Renewal limitations may occur due to circulation restrictions and pending patron requests.

Patrons who have set up their accounts for text or e-mail notifications will receive courtesy notifications with detailed information about renewals and non-renewals for materials on their accounts.

In all situations, patrons can check their online patron accounts to see when materials should be returned to the library.


Materials may be returned to any of our library branches (even if it isn’t the location where you checked it out). Book drops are located inside each building at the service desk and also outside the library for after-hours returns.

Longleaf Library Consortium

The Longleaf Library Consortium is comprised of four public library systems in south‐central Mississippi. 

The consortium was formed in August 2006 for the purpose of implementing quality circulation software while decreasing costs through shared financial resources and for the purpose of expanding the range of available library resources to the participating libraries’ patrons.

Ten counties with a combined population of 200,000 and a 5,397 square mile service area delineate the Longleaf Library Consortium. Each of the four public library systems is governed by its own administrative board of trustees. There are twenty-one branch libraries in the consortium. Patrons of each library may request books from any branch and may use their library card at any branch.
