Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Is the library open to the public?
Yes, the library is open to anyone! Watch this HealthBreak to learn about resources available at the Learning Center medical library at St. Patrick Hospital.

Is a medical library the same as medical records? No, we do not have access to patient information. We are a library with medical and health care focused resources instead of the variety that the public library has

Can people check things out from the library?
Yes, we can set you up with an account, we just need to see your driver's license or photo ID and you fill out a short application

How long can I keep an item?
Most items are on a three-week checkout, audio-visuals are limited to one week and there are some items that do not circulate, specifically Reference and Archive items. Up to four items may be checked out or renewed at one time.

Can I renew an item?
Most items can be renewed. Renewals may be made in person, by calling 406-329-5710 or by emailing library@saintpatrick.org

Do you charge overdue fees?
Fine policies are designed to promote equitable use of the library collections. Fines begin to accumulate as soon as the item is overdue. Failure of the library to send or the borrower to receive an overdue notice does not relieve the borrower of the responsibility for returning library materials on time.

  • Books, Audio/Video: $0.25 per day, per item
  • Competency Modules: $1 per day, per item

All items overdue for more than 10 days will be considered &ldauo;lost.” Replacement charges and Overdue charges of $10 will be billed. If an item is returned only the replacement charge will be waived.

What if I lose an item?

  • Books: current cost (to be assessed) or average cost of publication ($50), or the library user may replace exact edition in lieu of fee.
  • Audio/Video: Current cost (to be assessed) or average cost of video ($25).
  • Competency Modules: $10
