Patrons can check their due dates, renew their books and place books on hold on their
own computer. In order to do this, the patron must have the 14-digit library card
number and a four-digit PIN. A default PIN (Personal Identification Number) is issued
when the patron first receives a library card. The patron can then change it to a
personal number online. If forgotten, patrons may call the library to be reissued the
default PIN.

Instructions for Patron:

  1. First, go to and click on the My Account tab.
  2. When prompted, type in your 14-digit library card number and your four-digit PIN.
  3. You will be able to renew books, change your address and/or phone number (please
    notify your home library if you do so) and review the books you currently have out
    along with their due dates.
  4. To renew any book, just check the box in front of it and click “renew checked items.”
    If the item cannot be renewed (there is a two-renewal limit, or someone else has the
    book on hold), there will be a notice stating, “Item cannot be renewed. Check at the
    circulation desk.” Please call the library to override this notice.
  5.  If you would like to be able to see your loan history, you must request the service
    from the librarian. The list will begin from the day you request it. You may ask it to
    be turned off or erased at any time.
  6. To place a hold on a book, first locate the book in the online catalog. Click on “Place
    Hold” and enter your card number and PIN. This will automatically alert the owning
    library to retrieve the book from the shelf and notify you when it is available.
  7. If you have any problems, please call your library and ask for assistance. We will be
    happy to help!
