  • Each library card has 12 play credits each month.
  • Play credits reset on the 1st of the month.

  • Most films allow viewing for 3 days with one play credit. 
  • TV series from A&E or the History Channel are one play credit per full season. You have 72 hours to watch a season using one play credit.
