Frequently asked questions

Why are library cards required everytime an item is checked out?


When an item is borrowed, the library and the borrower enter into an agreement. The borrower is responsible for keeping the item safe and returing it at an agreed upon time to ensure others in the community will be able to enjoy the item, as well. Presenting a library card at each transaction helps ensure that items are associated with the correct patron account, due date reminders can be sent properly, and, if needed, fines can be assigned.




I have lost my library card. How do I get a replacement card?


Getting a replacement card is easy. Bring a photo ID with current address to the Circulation desk downstairs and one of our associates will help you. There is a $1 fee for replacing a lost card.
