FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW DO I GET A LIBRARY CARD?
Library cards are issued free of charge to county residents aged 18 or over upon presentation of a photo ID with permanent address. Cards may be requested at any library branch. If your photo ID does not show your permanent address, please bring separate proof of address within the county, such as a utility bill, bank statement, or rent receipt in your name. Those under 18 requesting cards must have a parent or guardian accompany them to sign the application form. Parents are responsible for any fees associated with their minor child’s card.
HOW DO I REPLACE A LOST LIBRARY CARD?
A fee of $1 is charged to replace stolen, lost or damaged library cards. You will need to present photo ID at a library service desk to get a replacement card.
HOW DO I FIND MY PIN?
Your PIN is the password associated with your account. If you do not know your PIN, you may request it here. NOTE: You must have a valid email address on file to use this method. If you do not have an email on file with the library, please call 307.577.7323 or ask for your PIN at any library branch.
HOW DO I RENEW MY ITEMS?
Most items may be renewed twice, provided another borrower has not requested that item. To renew your items go to Log In and click “Review My Account / Renew My Materials.” You will be asked to log in with your library card number (found on the back of your card) and PIN. Renewals may also be requested in person at any library branch or by phone at 307.577.7323. You will need your library card number and information about the items you would like to renew.
HOW DO I PLACE A HOLD?
