Scranton Public Library is introducing a new program that will let patrons borrow up to 20 items.

Materials borrowed through the Winter Loan Program do not have to be returned to the library for six weeks. Patrons interested in taking advantage of the program should tell library staff when checking out their items.

“We know that snowy weather and other concerns may prevent you from visiting the library in the next few weeks,” the library noted in announcing the program.

Popular titles on hold and those in the library’s “new” and “best-seller” displays are not eligible for inclusion. The library also does not guarantee that patrons can renew items taken out through the program.
