Guidelines for Borrowing and Use

Limited number of items available. First-come, first-served.

Objects lent out by the Library through its Library of Things program (“Things”) may only be checked out from the Front Desk at the Main Library in Downtown Dothan.

A valid Dothan Houston County Library System library card with current address and no outstanding fines above $20.00 is required to borrow a Thing.

If the patron has any fines associated with their account, they can pay them by logging into their account at, and selecting “Fines” on their account page.

The library card used to make the reservation as well as a valid photo ID must be presented. Library staff will make a photocopy and retain with the lending agreement prior to Thing checkout.

Borrowers must be 19 years of age or older with an adult library card.

Borrowers must read, understand, and sign this Agreement at the Front Desk in the presence of a library staff member every time they check out a Thing.
