Services and Policies
Library cards will be issued to all authorized users with proper identification upon the completion of a library card registration form. Minor children will only be issued library cards when accompanied by a parent or guardian. Authorized users include active duty military, retired military, dependants of active duty or retired military, DOD civilian employees, and contract employees with a CAC card.

Express Request
If you don't have time to pull the materials you need off of the shelves, the library staff will gladly pull them for you and have them at the front desk, ready for check out when you come to pick them up.  Place the materials on hold in the library catalog and they will be ready for pick up in 24 hours.  If you need the materials in less than 24 hours please call 575-784-2786 to place your request with a staff member.

Overdue Materials
It is the responsibility of the borrower and sponsor to ensure all library materials are returned on time. Overdue notices are delivered by email, BITS or USPS depending upon the customer. First Sergeants and Commanders are contacted when items are not returned after the first overdue notice. Borrowing privileges are suspended until all overdue items are returned.

Lost/Damaged Materials
All materials checked out are to be returned in the same condition and with all components intact this includes but is not limited to cases, covers, inserts and labels. Lost or damaged materials are to be replaced by the customer with an exact copy of the item checked out.

Noise levels are to be kept to a minimum as this is a small facility and sound carries easily. This includes disruptive children, talking on cell phones, and general loud discussions. Library staff members will request cooperation. Those refusing to cooperate will be asked to leave the facility.

Child Supervision
Children under the age 10 must be directly supervised at all times by a parent or guardian.

Cleanliness is extremely important to protect library materials and preserve the facility. Customers are asked to return used materials to the desk after use in the building, to push in chairs, and discard their own trash. No food of any kind is allowed in the library. Drinks are allowed.

Interlibrary Loan
Materials are borrowed from other libraries on behalf of Cannon Library customers.  A limit of three items may be borrowed at any one time.  Text books, local library materials and items available at local video rental stores will not be requested.

Returning Items
Materials may be returned inside during operating hours or in the drop box after hours.   The drop box is located in the parking lot in front of the library.
