Answer

Reference books are located on the second floor of the library and are for use within the library and cannot be checked out.  A classic example of a reference book is a dictionary or encyclopedia.

Regular books are available for checkout for a 3 week period and may be renewed one-time for an additional three weeks if the book is not on hold for another patron.
