The Bolivar County Library System (BCLS) has materials in various formats, including, but not limited to:
- Audiobooks on CD
- Digital audiobooks
- Magazines and journals
Most of these materials are available for check-out for a two-week period and, in most instances, may be renewed at least once. Exceptions are:
- Materials in the Reference section and the Mississippi Room at Robinson-Carpenter Memorial Library in Cleveland, which are for in-library use only.
- DVDs may be checked for a period of three days.
- Magazines and journals may be checked out for a period of seven days.
As newer formats become available, BCLS will attempt to purchase such items when appropriate to the collection and to the budget available.
