How Do I...?
GET A LIBRARY CARD?
For new library cards:
Just bring in a) a PHOTO ID (Driver's License, State/Military ID) and b) proof of your STREET ADDRESS in the area (Driver's License/ID if it has your street address, or a bill, statement, or piece of mail.) If you don't have proof of your street address, we can issue you a Limited Use card which allows 2 check outs at a time and computer access. New cards are FREE.
For replacement library cards:
Just bring in a PHOTO ID and we will update your information and issue you a new card. Replacement cards are $ 3.00.
To update your card:
Bring in your library card to update information or convert it from Limited Use to Regular Use. No charges.
USE THE LIBRARY'S COMPUTERS?
With a library card:
When you get your library card, you'll be asked if you would like computer access with the library. Say yes! You can also sign up at any time for access with your card. Once you've been signed up, ask the main desk to direct you to our two computer areas. There's a brief log in with our computers. Patron ID = your card number (ex: 41268) and Password = your last name all lower case (ex: jackson). You can use up to 2 hrs a day on our computers. Printing and making copies are both 20 cents a page.
Without a library card (just visiting):
Stop by the main desk, show staff your PHOTO ID and we will give you a Guest Pass good for 2 hrs. To log in with a guest pass, Patron ID = the code on the front of your pass. Be sure to include all dashes on the code. No password is required.
