* A maximum of 50 items may be checked out per MMSCL library card in addition to specific item limits
stated above
** Auto-Renew of item due dates occurs ONLY if: 1) the item is not reserved by anyone else & 2) the
patron's library record remains in good standing
Items checked out from other libraries, either through InterLibrary Loan or Direct Access, may have
different borrowing guidelines, including overdue fines.
ALL ITEMS: Replacement Cost = price listed in item record. Replacement fees are charged when an item is so long overdue that the Library needs to replace the item, as noted in the patron’s library record. There are no refunds on payments for replacements.
Out-of-District Patrons are governed by their Home Library's lending rules for items they borrow from MMSCL.


Most Mastics-Moriches-Shirley Community Library items will automatically renew up to 6 times (except most electronic devices) as long as there are no reserves placed on the item and the item is not over the renewable limit.

PLEASE NOTE: Interloaned materials must follow the home library’s lending policies.

Holds and Reserves

For your convenience, reserved items will be held for the stated period of time conveyed to you via email, text, or phone.  Patrons can request items online, by phone, or while you are in the library.
