What’s my PIN?

When you use your library card online, you will be asked for your PIN. You were assigned one when you got your card. It should be the last four numbers of your phone number.

If you have a card with us but have lost it, you will need to show

a picture ID. It will cost $1.00 to replace your card. If your card is lost or stolen, notify our Circulation Department immediately to prevent unauthorized borrowing.
