The Library offers two ways to access your Library account. Please have your library card number ready.
Access It Online
You can do lots of handy things by accessing your Library account online, including renewing Library materials, seeing whether you have any fines pending, and finding out the status of any holds you've placed on materials. Just tap or click the button below, then do the same to the "Login" button on the catalog page, and you're ready to go.
*** If you have problems logging into your account online:
- Confirm that you are using all 14 digits of your library card number. They are all required.
- You only need to use your first name or your last name in the "Your Name" field.
- Confirm that your entered name is the same as it is on the ID used to create your library card.
