First Time Logging In

First Time Logging In to Your Online Library Account

  • Make sure that you have registered with your local library and received a library card.
  • Make sure that you have provided your local library with a valid email address. This will allow you to:
    • modify your PIN (Personal Identification Number)
    • receive notices via email when an item you have requested has arrived at the library and is ready to be picked up and/or something you checked out has become overdue.
  • If you have not set up a PIN:
    • Go to your library’s online catalog and click “Login”.
    • Enter the barcode of your library card, and leave the PIN field blank. After clicking “submit”, you will be prompted to create a PIN. A PIN can be a combination of letters and numbers. If you have trouble with this, contact your local library for assistance.
