Library Cards are issued at no charge to those who present identification complete with current address. ID can be a government ID (driver's license, military ID or other) or even a piece of mail with your name and current address. A person of any age may apply for a card. Children under 17 must have a parent present to sign the application when applying for a card.
A $2.00 fee will be charged for replacement of damaged, lost, or stolen cards.
You can also renew your books on-line, right on the Library website.
You'll need log-in credentials, which include your library card number and a password, which you set up with a staff member at the check out desk.
The User Name is your Library Card number without the P before the number.
Then, enter the Password you set up and you're in!
Once you're logged in, look for the "My Info" tab towards the top of the screen, click that and you'll see the books you have checked out, when they're due and a place to the right of each title to renew.
The Book and Video Drop is located on the North Wall of the Library adjacent to the driveway. Enter on the East end of the Driveway, from Promenade St. You may return items at any time to the Drop.
You can also place a hold on a book from your account by going to the Catalog, looking up a book you're interested in. If the notation says "Available 0 of 1", click on the title of the book to go to the detail record. From there, you'll see on the right hand side of the screen a "Hold It!" button. Click that, and you're done!
The Library will inform you when the book is ready to be picked up.
You can also place a book on hold at the Library. Just go to the checkout counter and speak to a Librarian.
