General

What if I lost my library card?

Give us a call and let us know! We’ll put a block on your account until you are able to come into the library to get a new card.

Can I pick up someone else’s hold?

Yes, but only if you and the other person have previously set up your accounts to be linked in this manner. If you are interested in this, both parties must come to the library together in order to set up and verify the link.

Does the library charge overdue fines?

No, we don’t!

Can I view a list of items I have checked out?

How and when should I update my library card?

Your card expires after 3 years. In order to renew, you just need to bring your ID into the library to confirm your information is current.

If any of your information should change (ie. new address, phone number, email, etc.), the next time you visit us bring your ID and update your information at the desk. In the case of a name change, please bring your current ID and documentation of the name change.

Please note that temporary cards expire after 60 days and must be converted into a full card.
