These limits are for materials at the Burleson Public Library only. Materials requested from other libraries may have different checkout lengths, limits or late fees.

The Burleson Public Library does not charge late fees for overdue materials, but we do ask that you return library materials promptly out of consideration for others.

  • You will receive a courtesy notification when library materials are due.  You can choose how you'd like to receive notifications from us by logging into your account and choosing SMS (text messages) or email.
  • If you have materials that are two weeks overdue, your account will be blocked from borrowing until the overdue items are returned. You will also be blocked from borrowing digital items until your account is cleared.
  • Materials that are overdue for more than 30 days will be considered lost and you will be charged for the replacement cost of the item.

Video Games

We have Nintendo Switch games that can be checked out for three weeks with your library card, limit of 2 per card.

Library of Things

We have a variety of kits available for check out, including Read It Again kits, STEM kits, book club kits, family book club kits, baking kits, jigsaw puzzles and board games. Book club kits check out for six weeks, all other kits check out for three weeks. Some items in our Library of Things require a signed borrower agreement.

Wi-Fi Hotspots

The library has mobile Wi-Fi hotspots which can be checked out for one week by Burleson Library cardholders ages 18 and up. The portable hotspots provide an internet connection for phones, tablets or laptops anywhere there is a cell connection.  Hotspots must be returned to the library services desk during business hours.
