My Account

Take control of your library account!

From finding great new materials to managing your account at home, there are many things you can do to customize your library experience. Just ask a librarian about any of the options below, or follow the instructions to get started on your own!

Note that most of the options below are also available by logging into our catalog: to do this, go to our catalog and use the 'Log In' tool in the upper right. Enter your library card number (under the barcode on your card) as your log in and your full 10-digit phone number (or custom PIN) as your password.

If you'd rather, stop by the Circulation Desk or contact the library for assistance with any of these services.

Update Account Information

Your account needs a current address at all times, a current phone number is strongly advised and email addresses may also be added to receive notifications about your library account.

If your phone number or email address, or name have changed, log into the catalog and choose My Account > Account Info to add or update them.

If your name or address have changed, please contact the library.

Notification Preferences

We are now able to offer an automated email notice when you have items on your account that will be due soon, are overdue, or are available on reserve. You may also sign up to receive a checkout receipt with a list of items checked out and their due dates. To start receiving notifications via email, choose My Account > Notifications.

Renew

If you need more time with an item you have checked out, we can usually renew that item for another checkout period (1 to 2 weeks, depending on the material type). Renewals CANNOT be made when your items are overdue, when someone else has placed a reserve on the item you're trying to renew, or when the item was acquired through an in InterLibrary Loan.

To renew online via the catalog, log in and choose My Account > Items Out / Renewals.

Reserve

A reserve can be placed on any item in the library's catalog, and puts you in line to receive the item when it becomes available. Reserves for items are made strictly on a first-come first-served basis, and you will receive a notification when a reserved item is ready for you to pick up. Reserves are held at the front desk for 5 days after you are contacted.

To reserve online via the catalog, log in and then search for the item you'd like to reserve. Click on its title to bring up the item's information, then click the 'Reserve this item' button. Confirm your notification preference and then click 'Place Reserve' once more when prompted.

Automatic Reserves by Author: If there's a popular author whose work you always like, you can subscribe to them through your online account. To access this feature, log into the catalog, choose My Account > Reserves / Requests and under the section titled "Have some favorite authors?" click receive new items.
