• ( Q ) How much does it cost to rent a DVD?

( A ) New DVD rentals of first run movies that have been out for less than 3 months are $1.00 for a one week check-out. DVDs that are older than 3 months are free to rent. Overdue fees for all DVDs are $1.00 per day.

All funds raised from the DVD rental fees will go towards purchasing new DVDs.

• ( Q ) How do I renew my library card?

( A ) Its easy! We ask that each borrower stop in at any of the library system's fifteen locations to show proof that they live in Hinds County and provide updated information on your address and phone numbers at least once per year. It takes just a few minutes and ensures that we have up-to-date information about you.

• ( Q ) How long is my library card valid?

( A ) The card is always valid, but you must visit one of our libraries at least once per year beginning one year from the date of registration. Any card can be renewed by verifying address and telephone numbers on or around the time the card is set to expire.

• ( Q ) Can I return my books to any Jackson Hinds System Library?

( A ) Yes, you can return your books or AV items to any of the fifteen locations of the Jackson/Hinds Library System. Use our convenient book drops to make sure your books are checked in promptly. AV items must be returned at a circulation desk, not put into the book drop.

• ( Q ) Can I return my books after the library closes?

( A ) Most of our fifteen branches have a book return slot or an outside book drop for returning books after our normal hours of operation. Any books returned to these boxes will be credited to your account on the library's next operational day.
