We are excited to roll out a big change coming with our automation – NEW LIBRARY CARDS!
Admittedly, they are not incredibly fancy, but what you will get is a handy card to remember your new library card number. This is your number forever and always tied to your library account. The great part is, YOU CAN CHOOSE YOUR NUMBER, as long as someone else hasn’t previously claimed it, you may have any four digit number of your choosing, so put those thinking caps on and decide what your card number will be. (The numbers to spell ‘book’ have already been claimed).
ALL PATRONS MUST GET A NEW LIBRARY CARD. This important step verifies you have reviewed our policies and agreed to abide by them, including our policy for lost and damaged books, and our late fees. Additionally, we will need to verify your current address, so please bring a form of identification with you. Your driver’s license or a current bill is sufficient. If you provide an email address, you will get notifications when you have checked out books and before they are due so you can renew or return on time and avoid those fines!
Adult cards will be have a limit of 10 items per card. We also have children’s cards available for anyone under the age of 18, with a limit of five items. A child’s card requires the signature of a parent or guardian at the time it is issued.
Each card will have a three digit number on the back. This is your password to check your library account. From there you can update your personal information, check your due dates, renew your books, and place holds using our online catalog. Just click on the patron button in the upper right hand corner of the window by the Library’s name.
From there, you will be asked to sign in. This is where you need your library card. Enter your four digit card number that you chose, and the three digit password on the back of your card.
After that, you will be taken to your account screen. Here you can see which books you have checked out and when they are due. This is also where you can renew your books, just by clicking the blue ‘Renew’ button after the title you wish to renew.
Clicking on the Personal Information button (circled in green) will take you to a new screen where you can view your information on file and change it as necessary.
Just click on the edit button (circled in purple) and it will allow you to make the changes you need.
We will showcase more features as we get the catalog up and running. We are excited to modernize and automate the library and appreciate your patience and understanding as we institute these changes. If you have questions or need assistance, don’t hesitate to contact us!
