All video games and consoles circulate for one week, and can be renewed if no one else is waiting for the item.

To find video games the library owns and lends, do a Compass keyword search in the library catalog on "video games" (include the quotation marks):

After your initial search, you can refine the results to Video or Computer games in the Genre Limiter on the left hand side of the page. 

If the game is "Available", you can use "Request It" to have the video game held for you at the Lending Desk - you will receive an email when it is ready to be picked up.  If it is checked out, then you will be notified that it is ready for pick up after it is returned.

If you retrieve the item yourself, the video games are located in the Video Area on the upper level of the library, along with the DVDs.  All video games are located in the call number area GV1469.35, so feel free to browse the shelves to discover additional video games as well

Consoles are also available for lending:

Nintendo Wii
Nintendo WiiU
Sony Playstation 3
Sony Playstation 4
Microsoft Xbox 360

To find the console in the library catalog, do a keyword search on the name of the console:

If "Available," use "Request" so that the item will be held for you, or ask at the Lending Desk about checking it out.
