QuickSearch is a tool to find books, ebooks, films, audiobooks, articles, and more. Here patrons can view, reserve and renew materials online. QuickSearch includes materials from both the Midlothian and Chester Libraries and also from collections available online.
A library card is required to check out books, headphones, computers, and other library equipment. Library cards are also needed to reserve items. The loan period for most items is four weeks, with one renewal.
Books checked out at one campus library may be returned to the other campus library. Both campuses also have an outdoor book drop. Patrons can check their library record through the SIGN IN link in QuickSearch. Use your myTyler login to access your information. Through MY ACCOUNT, patrons can check on holds, renew books and update their library record.
Library materials can be requested for delivery at either campus. Generally this takes 1-2 business days.
